If you donít change your ways
youíre going straight to hell
or jail.
You are going to get AIDS
or the Herpes.
If you donít change your ways
youíre going to get Cancer
or Diabetes.
You are going to have a heart attack
or a stroke.
If you donít change your ways
youíre going to get fat
and ugly.
You are going to die all alone
and poor.
If you do change your ways
youíre going to get hit by a bus
or lightening.
You are going to drown in your soup
or champagne.
So let this be a word to the wise
about changing your ways
for whatever reasons why.
No matter how well intended
our reasons for change,
in the end we still die.
So in your changes and rearranges
remember to be happy
as you attempt to make
your life last longer.
It should make your smile stronger.
And donít worry about
the destination to your journey,
we never know when weíll get there
anyway.
Every day is a new roll of the dice,
so remember to always play nice.

Last line says it all.

Right on my friend!

And I'm here to tell you - in the end...<\i>
I'm gonna fight that "dying" thing to the last vestiges of the quarter I paid for this game!
