OUTSMARTING THE GRIM REAPER

Every morning when I awake
And reach for my paper and coffee cake,
I check to see if my name appears,
Trying to quell my deepest fears
That this might be the very day
When the old grim reaper has his way
It’s really a little game we play!

He’s trying to catch me unawares,
I don’t think that he really cares
When it will be, as long as he can say he’s won…
The game is over… so long… it’s done.
But I must outwit his nefarious scheme
For it has always been my dream
To live as long as my enemies do
Longer is better from my point of view!

So I eat my veggies, drink my milk,
Cream my face till it’s smooth as silk
When I drink my wine, I never drive,
Insuring I will arrive home alive.
I watch my weight, walk a mile a day
And watch out for cars along the way.
I’ve followed the plan to a tee
But there is a problem that I see

I’ve gotten too old to run and hide
As I feel my bones rub together inside
So I’ve decided to lure him to bed
But with someone else lying there instead.
And since love is blind, he will not see,
The victim he smites is not me!
The game is over…so long…it’s done
But he’ll never know…it is I who’s won!

GREEN COLA???

No, that will never take off!

Are You Normal?

Are you Normal? At the New Roald Dahl blog.

Are You Normal?

Are you normal?
Do you want to be,
A faceless person in a heaving sea,
With no aims, ambitions, dreams or goals,
Just happily plodding along that road?

Are you slowly dying?
Don’t you feel the magic of each new day,
The sounds of laughter as children play,
The warmth of the sun on your back, so good,
The song of birds, the smell of wood?

Are you passing time?
Don’t you wonder at the sky, so blue,
The start and end so vague to you?
I hear you say, I am happy, still,
So too is an ant that has no will.

Wake up, wake up!
It’s not too late,
There still is time to change your fate,
Renounce the normal, do something MAD,
Shock them all create a fad.

Be yourself, alive with goals,
With dreams and wonders still untold,
Exult life in your own distinctive way,
It’s yours alone; you must have your say,
Lest you slip into oblivion (without a trace).

Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life

Monty Python – Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life – Life of Brian

Some things in life are bad.
They can really make you mad.
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you’re chewing on life’s gristle,
Don’t grumble. Give a whistle.
And this’ll help things turn out for the best.
And…

Always look on the bright side of life.

Always look on the light side of life.

If life seems jolly rotten,
There’s something you’ve forgotten,
And that’s to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you’re feeling in the dumps,
Don’t be silly chumps.
Just purse your lips and whistle. That’s the thing.
And…

Always look on the bright side of life.

(Come on!)

Always look on the right side of life,

For life is quite absurd
And death’s the final word.
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin.
Give the audience a grin.

Enjoy it. It’s your last chance, anyhow.
So,…

Always look on the bright side of death,

Just before you draw your terminal breath.

Life’s a piece of shit,
When you look at it.
Life’s a laugh and death’s a joke. It’s true.
You’ll see it’s all a show.
Keep ‘em laughing as you go.
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.
And…

Always look on the bright side of life.

Always look on the right side of life.

(Come on, Brian! Cheer up!)

Always look on the bright side of life!

Always look on the bright side of life!

(Worse things happen at sea, you know!)

Always look on the bright side of life!

(I mean, what you got to lose? You know, you come from nothing, you’re going back to nothing. What have you lost? Nothing!)

Always look on the bright side of life!

(Nothing will come from nothing. You know what they say?)

Always look on the bright side of life!

(Cheer up, you old bugger! Come on, give us a grin! There you are! See?)

(It’s the end of the film. Incidentally, this record’s available in the foyer.)

Always look on the bright side of life!

(Some of us have got to live as well, you know.)

(Who do you think pays for all this rubbish?)

Always look on the bright side of life!

(They’ll never make their money back, you know. I told him.)

(I said to him, ‘Bernie.’ I said, ‘They’ll never make their money back.’)

Always look on the bright side of life!
