Since We Are Mere Mortals

The biological clocks on our lives keep ticking away
And the end is drawing nearer with each night and day
And since we are mere mortals the facts never lie
We are born into life and destined for to die
With each tick of the clock our end is drawing near
But 'tis only the fear of death that we do fear
The average life span of a woman is a few years more than that of a man
But in time the longest human life is not a very long span
Feel happy if to seventy years you survive
In ten years from now I may not be alive
The boy of the fifties is ageing today
Time does take it's toll as some are known to say
When we reach our forties our best years are gone
And the clock on our lives does tick on and on.
