In the Christmas song "Mistletoe and wine" there is such a sentence :
"hours for the taking, just follow the master". Could someone explain the sentense to me? What's the "taking"? taking what?
Richard liked the song but wanted to change the lyrics to reflect a more religious theme, to which the writers agreed." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mistletoe_and_Wine)
Gilnetter is right about 'ours', Ania, but you may have found it on the internet as 'hours'.
