I Hope


I hope this will be

The beginning of must be 

And the word it seems to be

Is a healthy eternity.




It's A Shame To Me


It's a shame to me

That the good word "pie"

Sounds quite the same as "die"




I Do Call These The Golden Years


These are the golden years 

That's what I call these

It is but not quite all

Filled with disease.




When Young I Wanted In My Coffin 


When young I wanted in my coffin, chocolate

When older I wanted my girl 

But now when closer 

I want a defibrillator
