With a smile on his face, and bounce in his walk
you couldnt resist, with him you had to talk!
he was never so rude, to have said a malice word,
didnt have your homework? he'd help for sure!
He was the kindest young man, I know in my school..
he wasnt in the incrowd, not considered cool
he had a mind of silver and a heart of gold,
didnt have a jacket?, he'd stand in the cold
but you see.. a week ago today, my friend you see, is gone,
He fell asleep at the wheel, my friends life is done
But the thoughts of him make me smile,and make me wanna be
as sweet and happy, as my friend Cliff was for me,
In memory of him, I'll never forget, his calm and happy stride
I'll miss you Cliff, and wish you would have never died
but I'll go on, and sing your song,
with a smile on my face, and bounce in my walk
and surely with me, they shall have to talk.
