Lyrics
1. One day while I was watchin’ my color TeeVee
A man offered me an opportu-ni-ty.
He sounded real excited and began to shout;
He said: “Pick up the phone, or you’re gonna miss out”

So I thought about it for a week or two,
And I finally did what I needed to do.
But I’d waited too long, and time ran out.
I never did learn what it was all about.

Chorus:
Don't hes-i-tate, friend. (hes-i-ta-tion)
Pro-crastination is the thief of time.
So don't hes-i-tate, boy. (hes-i-ta-tion),
Grab the Bull by the horns and spend your dime
And don't hes-i-tate, Bud. (hes-i-ta-tion)
You gotta act while you’re in your prime.
Don't hes-i-tate, don’t make me wait.
He who hesitates is lost!

2. I met this chick at a party the other night;
Everything about her seemed to be just right.
She asked me to tell her what I’d like to do,
So I thought about it for a minute or two.

She said: “Time’s a-wastin’, I ain’t got all day”,
Then she turned on her heel, and she walked away.
I just stood there with my jaw hung loose,
And I thought to myself: “There ain’t no excuse"!

3. I once got a tip on a long-shot trotter
From a gal who said she’s the jockey’s daughter.
Now, I like to play the ponies once and awhile,
But heavy bettin’ just ain’t my style.

By the time I’d decided that I ought-a act
I'd reached my decision long after the fact.
My hot-tip nag ran away with the race
While I'm left there standin’ with egg on my face.
