I climbed up a mountain just to see this guru guy
To find the secret of life before it passed me by
He whispered in my ear the clear and wondrous truth
The path to enlightenment, the fountain of youth. He said …

The beauty of a balanced life, the pleasure that it brings
Just be careful and remember one thing.

After 30 years it looks like a gentle kind of love
With friendly hugs and kisses; they fit together hand in glove
But passion only waits until they burn the midnight oil
Just like a cozy tea pot, when it starts to boil.
