Verse 1
Ah, the news of my impending death.
Came at a really bad time for me.
Yeah, the news of my impending death.
Any other day might have been o.k.
I was starting to track with my inner guide.
I was getting in touch with my feminine side.
But when the doctor starts whistling "Happy Trails".
Tends to knock a bit of wind out of the old sails.

Desi Ray, if I may be so blunt.
Galahad, bag your agnosyic front.
Underwood, hire a good undertaker.
Freddie get ready to meet your maker.

Verse 2
Ah, the news of my impending death.
Came at a really bad time for me.
I was far too young to depreciate.
When they read me my expiration date.
I'd built Iron Man stalls in the northern wild.
I'd played Cabbage Patch dolls with my inner child.
Now i'm getting sealed bids for a granite vault.
And i'm pretty sure this is my parents fault.

Verse 3
Ah, the news of my impending death.
Came at a really bad time for me.
When they cancel your breathing policy.
Tends to steal a bit of the old Joie De Vivre.
I'd just found the lost key to my mythic life.
So I bravely shook free of my kids and wife.
I had seminars booked as a second career.
Until a still small voice screamed loud and clear.
Right now i'm working on The Moshing Floor, The Finish Line,
Bannerman and Curses off this album and Sometime Sunday's Home
