music by Thelonious Monk
lyrics by Carmen McRae


Well Monk set it straight
There's not a time when you wait
You gotta be on
You gotta be strong
The time is here
So trust your life
To your ear
Don't wait for no one
They'll have to grow on
Because the homeland is the place where it happens
And there's no one who can help you to straight, no

This monk had a way
Of being out of his day
Ahead of his time
Not in the same rhyme with other guys
He was uncommonly wise
He knew the answer
That time's a dancer
You know you can't back up the moment
And take it with you on the road
So now is the time
