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
