  As Old As Time Itself

As old as time itself

As varied as all the cultures

Of this earth

Providing pleasure

That is timeless

 

With roots so basic

And a language

All can understand

But few can master

 

It is to sound

As colour is to sight

In its nature

It expresses life

 

Constantly being created

Continually revisited

Recycled, revamped

Evolving with each generation

 

Suppressed

Censored

But still its flow

Can not be stopped

 

With a life

All of its own

Like a river that's

Burst its banks

There's no holding

It back

 

That is why

It would be hard

To imagine a world

Where music

Did not exist
