Where Is Your Life Headed (Carol, Dear)?
From
A Carol's Christmas

SISTER MARGARET: Can you tell where you’re going?
Do you figure that you’re knowing what’s ahead, Carol?
Can you see where you’re headed?
Are you sure you won’t regret it when you’re dead, Carol?
Have you spent some time examining your life
Or are you simply passing time?
Do you know if you’ll find happiness or strife?
You’d better think ahead for peace of mind.

So are you clued into your future?
Are you certain it’ll suit your final goal, Carol?
Have you thought about tomorrow?
Are you filled with hope or sorrow in your soul, Carol?
Can you see your need to ponder your path
Before your journey’s end draws near?
Where is your life headed, Carol dear?

So are you clued into your future?
Are you certain it’ll suit your final goal, Carol?
Have you thought about tomorrow?
Are you filled with hope or sorrow in your soul, Carol?
Can you see your need to ponder your path
Before your journey’s end draws near? [big breath]
Are you prone to introspection?
Will you make the right connection?
Do you think you’ll pass inspection
When it’s time to reach perfection?
Will you follow my suggestion
And consider now this question — [gasp!]
Where is your life headed, Carol, Carol dear?
