Pretty young thing, only wanted to sing; sold off her soul to buy her one dream

 

She climbed to the top to conquer the world, and was pulled straight down

Such a pitiful girl

 

But by and by, this life goes on; and on it did go, though now she is gone

 

Her tragedy was she lived life alone, and still at the end, she had not a home

 

A promising lad, just like his dad, went on a journey made by the mad

 

Sought out the reason the stars light the sky, and then left the earth to find out just why

 

The voyage he made though ended half through, when his vessel broke down although it was new

 

The news of his fall brought angels to tears, and flew straight on through the world’s heartless ears

 

But by and by, life went right on; and on it did go, though now he is gone

 

His tragedy was he left a safe home, to seek out the stars, and died out alone

 

Delicate dame, had feet hewn of glass; she danced on her heart, and ran the race fast

 

Beloved by the world, a spell she did last; she danced and she danced, until her time passed

 

They wanted a younger, lovelier bird; to take up her spot and lead on the herd

 

Her feet were then broken by traitorous snakes, who dug out the pit, which sealed off her fate

 

Poor ruined dame then lost all her fame; and watched them write off her once favored name

 

She wasted away and lost to her pain; and soon she did die and exit the game

 

But by and by, life still went on; and on it did go, though now she is gone

 

Her tragedy was as sad as the rest; for she was another who failed life’s cruel test

 

The test of the rise and subsequent fall

The test of the tragedies made for us all

The test of a life which ever goes on

And on it will go, still after we’re gone
