Working Man's Rhyme

My view every day, first thing of the mountain
serves in a way for me as a fountain
of youth

The alarm clock strikes without any warning
the radio news give its dose every morning
of truth

I get up and wonder who must be impressed
get showered and dressed and start feeling stressed

Stumble downstairs consumed in my thinking
some breakfast to eat and coffee for drinking
I need

With each passing moment I'm feeling much older
'til something I see glancing over my shoulder
that's true

My stress starts to melt, I'm no longer high-strung
this thing that I see that makes me feel young
is the view.
