Words to the Wise

 

Haste makes waste, we’ve often been told,

But he who hesitates is lost.

These kinds of words to the wise can hold gold,

But sometimes they seem to get crossed.

 

Like absence will only make her heart grow fonder,

Hopes the guy going away.

But out of sight is out of mind,

Smiles his buddy who’s decided to stay.

 

A word to the wise is sufficient,

But on the other hand, talk is cheap.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

But you better look before you leap.

 

If birds of a feather like to flock together,

Then why do opposites attract?

Seek and you will find, but remember

Curiosity killed the cat.

 

A word to the wise about words to the wise.

You better think twice about any advice.

Words to the wise mostly seem to relate,

To being wise enough to know which to take.

Words to the wise, comes as no surprise,

Will depend upon your point of view.

Did you ever wonder if the early worm,

Thought he got up just a little too soon?

 

Too many cooks are gonna spoil the broth,

But many hands make light work.

You can’t teach an old dog any new tricks,

But you’re never too old to learn.

 

Never put off til tomorrow,

What you can get done today,

But you gotta wait to cross the bridge til you get there,

I’ve heard some smart people say.

 

A word to the wise about words to the wise.

You better think twice about any advice.

Words to the wise mostly seem to relate,

To being wise enough to know which to take.

Words to the wise, comes as no surprise,

Will depend upon your point of view.

Did you ever wonder if the poor old early worm,

Was wishing that he’d slept til noon?.

 

The Lottery is a tax on folks bad at math,

But you can’t win if you don’t play.

You can’t have your cake and eat it too,

But what else would you do with cake?

 

I’ll stop now cause silence is golden…

Bit the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

The early bird might get his worm.

But the second mouse gets the cheese.
