Saw an old man sittin' on the street
just the other day,
He was singin' a song from sixty-two,
people turned away;
As I walked by, he smiled at me,
looked me in the eye,
Told me I reminded him of a better day gone by.

Then he took some paper from his pocket
and he handed it to me,
As I read the words, he winked his eye,
smiled and walked away.

Saying, you got to play your cards
and roll those dice,
You may never get a second chance in this life;
Don't waste your time, 'cause time will tell,
Good things yeah they hardly ever
roll around twice.
No second chances... No second chances.

And I followed him down Main Street,
'cause I couldn't think of why
Somebody wise as this old man
could barely just survive;
Well, I found him down on Broadway,
he said I'm at home right here,
And if you've got any questions, son,
well the answers are everywhere.

Then I took that paper from my pocket
and I offered it to him,
He just smiled at me, winked his eye,
and he walked away again.

Saying, you got to play your cards
and roll those dice,
You may never get a second chance in this life;
Don't waste your time, 'cause time will tell,
Good things yeah they hardly ever
roll around twice.
No second chances... No second chances.

Well, I ain't seen that old man
ever since that day,
I tried real hard to find him
before he passed away;
I wish I could have told him
before his time had come,
Thanks for the words of wisdom about
the things you done wrong.

Still got that paper in my pocket
and I often think of him,
I can see him smile at me and wink his eye,
and I can hear his words again.

Saying, you got to play your cards
and roll those dice,
'Cause you may never get
a second chance in this life;
Don't waste your time, 'cause time will tell,
Good things yeah they hardly ever
roll around twice.

Yeah, you got to play your cards
and roll those dice,
'Cause you may never get
a second chance in this life;
Don't waste your time, 'cause time will tell,
Good things yeah they hardly ever
roll around twice.
No second chances... No second chances;
No second chances... No second chances.
