Waiting On Tomorrow?

If I had known in days gone by
The things I know today,                               

I’d have thought and felt and acted,
Sometimes, in different ways.

If yesterday’s tomorrows
Hadn’t come ahead of time,
If they’d waited ’till I’d learned some more
And had made it to my prime,

I would have done a better job
Of living properly;
If wisdom from today had been
More than a mystery.

And now I’d like to put a hold
On life’s full speed ahead,
Just until tomorrow brings me
Knowledge from up ahead.

Why, I could guarantee success!
I could live the perfect way!
Could I just get my tomorrows
To become my yesterdays!
