meter: 11 / 4 with a 4 /4 vocal bridge
church bells of St. Vincent's in Petaluma tolled 11 times somewhat clandestinely by our Jeffry Morse



I used to live in a box
so I had to act small
it was a small world
in a sad time

I was too busy to see
that opportunity knocks
in a big world
in a big time

It’s just matter of time
until your world gets big
it’s the big world
in the big time

You don’t to have to act small
there’s room for all
in the big world
in the big time

It goes on and on
and round and round
if you listen close
you can hear the sound
of the big world
in the big time

It’s the big world
in the big time
