i wont ever walk with a cane
there's no need of getting old
ill just play out in the rain
and catch my death of cold

a cynical statement i just made
but oh how well it did rhyme
and there will be some lemonade
for the good ole country time

a matchbox has my name on it
it lays worn beneath my bed
i first burned a creeping sonnet
that had escaped from my head

i am sad but i am young
there is more to life to waste
it wont help to hold my tongue
theres too much in life for haste

i'd start by saying i am fine
then close by saying i am sad
but thats all right it's all mine
the one feeling ive ever had

watch it burn this dreary verse
someone wrote it just for you
if you cant help but feeling worse
then dont think of it as its true
