When a host of pleasures stole my time

When I engaged in smoking, drinking and sexing

When I sowed the seeds of my foolishness

When vices lorded over my tender heart

When I forgot to heed papa’s words against such vanities.

But today is a new day

When time must be of essence

When the fool must learn to be wise

When the gentle, wise and saintly must be sought for

To know that life has the balance of joy and pain

To heed the counsel of the elderly about booze, sex and friendship

For strong wine is a mocker

For rightless sex corrupts

And unguarded friendship destroys.
