Though You May Die Unsung

An old saying I remember that I wish was a lie
That the longer you live the sooner you will die
Three score and ten years the average human life span
Though one ought to live for as long as one can
Many pray to their god in his kingdom somewhere in the sky
Though why none have come back to tell of it's existence I do wonder why
Since anyone I know who has died I never more see
This life after death seems quite doubtful to me
I would like to enjoy a good glass of wine
As a crabbedy old fellow of one hundred and nine
Without a single gray hair on my shiny bald head
And others saying of me how come he's not dead?
Live for as long as you can though you may die unsung
For they talk rubbish those who say the good die young.
