This little pop gem from years gone by (words by Herb Magidson; music by Carl Sigman; arranged by Ruth Elaine Schram) is delightful for your young singers today! The text tells the listener that life is short and should be enjoyed now instead of waiting until it is too late. Ruthie has written easy, two-part harmonies, incorporating the use of echo and repetition of patterns. The feel is a rhythmic samba and both parts get to share the melody. Cute and wonderfully novel!

Many know this song by Backer, Davis, Cook, and Greenaway as the Coca-Cola commercial theme from the '70's.  It's an ideal, lighthearted song of brotherhood and togetherness that is timeless and uplifting.
