It flows like rivers to the sea

On and on perpetually

Constant and running free

It flows in great abundance

All across the world

Perpetually in motion

Ever onwards to the oceans

It flows twenty four seven

Throughout the whole of life

Sometimes bringing joy

Sometimes causing strife

You simply can’t avoid it

It follows you around

But be careful how you take it

It may well fill you with gloom

When it’s good it lifts you up

An antidote to doom

So listen very carefully

To what is said to you

Before you wisely decide 

Just which advice to chose
