Down the river of life we go,
Over waterfalls and across the meadows,
And me with a broken paddle.
To paddle upstream would be futile,
so I merely watch,
The essence of life as I fly by.
Pirhanas gaily swim around me,
merely waiting for me to founder.
I beat at them with a paddle,
and with the handle,
paddle on.
The river is short enough,
But if you get stuck on a sandbar one day,
Don't blame me if you're bored by the time
you reach the end.
I'm gonna go over the waterfalls at 100 mph.
Thank you.
