Till My Sun No Longer Shines

Now let me see, what's on my mind Is it still clicking along Will I get any kind of advance warning When I won't be singing life's song The lyrics will all seem foreign to me Start hitting some real sour notes Should I write down my name just in case I go out in the winter with no coat Sure can't imagine ending life this way After such a productive run But I must be ready for any eventuality In case I fall down on my bum My mind wanders back to all those years Was sharp as the proverbial tack Riding the wave of a productive good life Till age kinda changed all that Well thankfully that's all still in the future Best take each new day as it comes Till that day when my sun no longer shines Gonna keep on beating life's drum
