There was I, crying my head off,

Because my love had walked away.

I was left with a terrible cough,

And getting drunk every day.


The love of my life had gone,

And left me forlorn.

Sad and miserable,

Weak and not able.


Then I gave up the drink

And started seriously to think

I will not lie down and sink,

And bring myself right to the brink--


Where death takes a hold,

And you're no more.

You failed to be bold,

Now you're behind a dark door.


Avoid, if you can

The end before the begin starts.

Be  a man,

And search out the right parts.


Come to your senses,

Be like a horse, jumping all the fences.

It has a chance of getting to the line,

Be a human, let your  life shine.
