Death Is Serious
No one knows how long they'll live
I guess it's much better that way
Who among us really wants to know
When we'll reach that final day?
Please let it be a great big surprise
Like maybe while eating ice cream
Expire with a huge smile on my kisser
Or perhaps pass away while I dream
Death's quite messy at the best of times
Did you ever hear someone say this
“Mary had a really charming death!
She even gave me a good-bye kiss!”
Probably the absolute best way to me
Is in the warm embrace of a loved one
The shock could cause their death too
Then off we'd both go when fun's done!
Bet you're thinking, how can he make fun
Of such a serious subject as death
Hey! You ain't never going to avoid it, folks
So enjoy life till your very last breath
