My Problem

Time problem
People need time
Problem time
Need to save time
Never enough time
No time to play
No time to run, jump
My problem is time
Fifteen minutes to run and play
Five minutes to be gay
Hours, hours to be alive
Time, it will always be my problem
Time problem
Too much time
Did you see 16
Can you be 16
Hey 16
Time won’t run out
I understand
Time won’t run out
