The "journey of existence "
Is a rugged one, we know,
Then, as you drive along the road,
Be careful how you go,
Keep a tight rein in your hand,
Or you may get a spill,
And mind and put the brake on
When you're going down the hill.

For life's a rugged journey,
Let men say what they will;
So mind and put the brake on
When you're going down the hill.

The world is always moving,
And a man is not allowed,
To loiter by the wayside,
But must go with the crowd,
Who travel on life's dreary way,
To bring grist to the mill,
But he's bound to put the brake on
When he's going down the hill.-Chorus.

The fastest race is soonest run
Upon the great highway
Of life-as folks discover
If they travel night and day.
The road is sometimes level,
But in spite of strength and skill,
You're bound to put the brake on
When you're going down the hill.-Chorus.

In search of empty pleasures.
Many travel on so fast.
But find the pace too killing,
So they come to grief at last.
And when "Old Time " o'ertakes them,
And nature claims her bill,
They'll wish they'd put the brake on
Ere they'd travell'd down the hill.-Chorus.
