ARE YOU SURE ABOUT THE RUNWAY MODEL? Have a picnic on a perfectly picked Sunday Have someone tell me I’m loved by a model on the runway Look out my window and find trees made of gold With leaves of diamonds for our eyes to behold Play with a new puppy who has floppy ears Someone to wipe away my tears and fears Laugh with a little one on the monkey bars Take a safe and pleasant ride up to Mars Sit in the Santiago sun with that certain one Make love to that certain one when the day is done Build castles of sand that the tide can’t wash away Ride at Christmas night on Santa’s sleigh Live with the knowledge that everyone on earth has enough to eat And enough safe drinking water when they suffer from the heat I’ve named all of these blessed things and here is why Instead of doing all these wondrous things I’d really rather die © 2011.… cee!
