You don’t know me but I need to talk to someone...
I need to tell someone just how terrified I am..
I am just out of hospital...
They scared the living daylights out of me....
They said I only have a few months to live..
Funny thing life..You know I had dreams...
I never married but I did dream of walking down the aisle
with a beautiful bride..Linda was her name..
Oh she married Jack Williams instead.. Well she had to..
I mean he had his own plumbing business..I mean I was
just starting out...wasn’t much of a catch I suppose..
Anyway they had a dozen kids and that was that..
You think everything is going along like a river downhill
and suddenly they tell you you’ve got cancer..
I don’t mind really..Life can be tough sometimes..
Although I would have liked to see Egypt..
My father fought there in the war and I always
wanted to go there...Don’t think I’ll make it now...
I would have like to see the Pyramids..doesn’t matter I suppose..
Still no use crying over spilt milk as they say...
Thanks for listening mate it was good to get it off my chest..
You have a great day now..bye.
