[VERSE] 
It's not [G]time to make a [D]change, just [C]relax and take it [Am7]easy
You're still [G]young that's your [Em]fault there's so [Am]much you have to [D]know
Find a [G]girl, settle [D]down, if you [C]want, you can mar[Am7]ry
Look at [G]me, I am [Em]old, but I'm [Am]happy[D]

I was [G]once like you are [D]now, and I [C]know that it's not [Am7]easy
to be [G]calm, when you've [Em]found something [Am]going on[D]
But take your [G]time, think a [D]lot, why think of [C]everything you've [Am7]got
For you will [G]still be here to[Em]morrow, but your [D]dreams may [G]not
