    ...I think it's better than the link:

    Some days come and some days go,
    But Someday never gets here.
    Someday is just a dream away.
    Someday is always next year.


    Someday, we’re all goin’ fishin’.
    I’m taking my family with me.
    We’re heading to the lunker lake,
    Where that trophy’s sure to be.


    Someday, we’ll all raft the river,
    Or maybe paddle by canoe.
    We’ll soak up fun and challenge.
    There’s nothin’ we won’t do.


    Someday, I’m heading up North,
    Or maybe I’ll head West.
    Take my son on that dream hunt
    Where hunting is the best.


    We’ll go by boat, we’ll go by plane,
    Or maybe mule or horse.
    Somewhere where, big game is big,
    In the wilderness of course.


    Someday, I’ll win big in the lotto,
    And when my ship comes in,
    I’ll find the time, I’ll find the money,
    I’ll be gone with the wind.


    Yet something says there’s work to do
    And bills that must be paid.
    That time and money can’t be found.
    They both must be made.


    So the time had come for action.
    Someday would soon be here.
    I’d go for broke. I’d make my move,
    I’d overcome my fear.


    Then I called the man to set it up,
    to confirm our coming date.
    He said, "Someday’s been booked for
    years," That we were way too late.


    He says, "Everyone’s going someday."
    The most popular of days.
    He suggested I try firsts or seconds
    Of Junes, Julys or Mays


    And, when I cursed in great frustration,
    He sensed that I’d turned red.
    So he agreed to confirm a date for me –
    that someday – I’d be dead.


    And on that day we’ll be together,
    my family and my friends.
    They’ll toast the times that could have
    been and say their last "Amens."


    They’ll say, "Ol John was quite a guy.
    He knew how to set a goal!"
    Then bury those dreams right with him
    inside a six foot hole.


    Cuz some days come and some days go,
    And Someday will finally get here.
    Someday when your dreamin’s done.
    Someday there’ll be no next year.


    So make the time, take the money,
    make your dreams come true.
    Because every day is some day.
    The decision is up to you.

    My father used to tell me for years that "someday" he wanted me and him to go elk hunting in CO. I also wanted that very much. During that time we waited for "someday" I had become a guide. Well it just so happened that one year I guided a father and son from CO. They loved to elk hunt there and told me if I ever wanted to come down and go elk hunting just let them know.

    Well my season was over and I had some time, so I gave that man a call. He looked at his schedule and said "Sure we can go for the second season..." So I called my Dad and said "Dad....it's all set" he said "What?" I said "the elk hunt we've always wanted to do". He tried to get out of it as it was obvious that his "someday" hadn't come just yet. But I persisted, and persisted, AND PERSISTED!!!, and he finally said "Ok....let's do it!"

    We did, went in on horses, and had a fantastic time. We even came home with two raghorn bulls! That was in 1997, and it turned out to be our last hunt together as we lost Dad in 99'. I can't tell you how glad I am that I finally decided to make "someday" happen....
    Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

    I hope someday never comes. Cause someday I'll have regrets.

    Nice when everything seems to fall perfectly in place,like a "miracle". I bet you were so glad you were persistent on that was the year for the trip
