Death Is Serious

Written by: Jack Ellison

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 © Jack Ellison 2014
