The Chance for Change

        The New Year brings the chance for change.
        All of the things we can rearrange.
        We start off fresh and eyes aglow.
        We can make a new start is what we know.

        We'll lose the weight, we say at last.
        Trying to forget we've said that in the past.
        I'll save some money is the new resolve
        Anyone know what I'm speaking of?

        More time with the kids, less time with TV.
        This year I'm really going to work on me.
        I'll tighten it up and get it in shape
        My what a difference this year will make.

        It's not really the resolution
        That's not at all the real solution
        It's not even the coming year
        That will help you cut down on your beer.

        The secret does not lie in January
        The day of the year is not your adversary
        The season does not make you pass or fail
        You could do it in June just as well.

        How many New Year's resolutions do we keep?
        Most don't survive the second week.
        If you want to succeed at whatever you say
        You must make up your mind no matter what the day.

        New Year or not, set your resolve
        Show the world what you're made of
        Set your goals and start them now
        Get to pushing, get behind the plow.

        You may not succeed at all the first time
        You may fall off the wagon and get behind
        The key is to try again, and try it soon
        Whether it's January or whether it's June.

        The chance for change is always there
        As long as we're breathing God's precious air
        Little is really out of your range
        Just don't miss the chance, the chance for change.
