'Pick-Up Time' from Souldance

The day is looking positive
Our profits set to climb
But already I am counting
The hours
To pick-up time.

I know you’re very important
This gourmet lunch divine
In spite of that I’m counting
The minutes
To pick-up time.

I’m really glad you called to say
The contract is now mine
But I must confess I’m dashing
It’s seconds
To pick-up time!

My children rush to get front seat
Their laughter is sublime
Freeze the moment
Stop the clock …
I live for pick-up time.
