I Ain't Done Yet



Laugh and the world laughs with you Laugh alone and you look like a goof A good rule to follow, just try to blend in It works coz I'm living proof Get down and boogie with the plain old folks You'll find we're all similar inside Each wants the very same things out of life To hold up our noggins with pride So proud to have lived a productive life Treated everyone with due respect Gave back to each community we lived in We sure don't have any regrets We can look back on life and honestly say There's nothing we'd like to change Life's been a blast, from beginning to end Never strived for fortune or fame Content with my life as I can possibly be No negatives, no hang-ups, no regrets It's been a blast for all seventy-seven years But no fear, I sure ain't done yet © Jack Ellison 2013

    Dragon and I (plain old folks) (The penguins are just too cute and the frogs are just plain weird so can't claim them)... Began to get worried. Glad you added the last line... I'm not confusing to read...No... Not at all... LOL... I'd try to write it again but I'm not sure... what I wrote the first time... I think it's one of those days... like always... LOL... You understand, right?
