And in the meantime there is trouble with the neighbors,

And this is just the beginning – la la la...

And with much wisdom comes much sorrow

For this is just the beginning – la la la...

 

At times a man is joyful and other times he suffers,

And from one to the other he celebrates a quarter century

And this is just the beginning – la la la...

 

A man builds his home and has his strength

Perhaps it’s a bitter moment, but it’s not yet over,

For this is just the beginning – la la la...

 

Now from the east a new day dawns

And this your land flowing with milk and honey

And this is just the beginning – la la la...
