i shot a bird with an arrow once

I shot a bird with an arrow once
one sad and sunny day.
It wiggled a bit and jumped just twice, 
and then lay still as May.

I sat and wished it live again
until I saw it's note, 
it said 'Dear sir, you got me good'
and that was all it wrote.

So when you pass you'll find my tomb, 
engraved when I have gone, 
will read ' Oh Death you got me good, 
whats taken you so long'.
