Procol Harum — Taking The Time lyrics

I was standing on the mountain top staring at the sun
I was trying to act the hero's part not fooling anyone
I was living for the moment but the moment never came
Taking notes and stealing quotes, trying to make a name
My time's been taken with taking my time
By making my mind up to make up my mind
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/procol-harum-taking-the-time-lyrics.html ]
I was living in the country: I was trying not to freeze
I was working on the cabbage plants, chopping down the trees
I was learning how to cook the goose and how to milk the cow
Taking out the dog for walks, teaching him how to bow
My time's been taken with taking my time
I'm making my mind up to make up my mind
