Satirical Lyrical: It's Sad When People Die

It's Sad When People Die
©2011 Farce Satires

Mama said "Your aunt wants to see you"
"She's only got a little while"
So I shuffled up to her bedside
Doing my best to smile
My aunt said "Boy, you're growing tall"
"Son here's some advice of mine
The secret to a happy life…."
And that's when she flatlined

It's sad when people die
Listen to this song and cry
Remember those who aren't alive
Rolled out of here like tears from your eyes
It's so sad
So sad when people die

Granddaddy was older than Cain
I was helping him in the yard
We had a few laughs raking the leaves
And washing his old car
When we were done we shared some Cokes
And he poured in a little Beam
He said "Someday, son, I won't be here"
Then he slumped over on the swing

It's sad when people die
Listen to this song and cry
Remember those who aren't alive
Saying goodbye with one last sigh
It's so sad
So sad when people die

Bridge
I came home from college 'cause dad was sick
And you just can't get time back
Pulled in the drive in Granddad's old car
And ran over my dog Jack

It's sad when doggies die
Listen to this song and cry
Remember those up in the sky
Gone from this place like your face's smile
It's so sad
So sad when people and doggies die
