An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the 1. and died the next day
It’s a death row pardon two 2. too late
And isn’t it ironic… don’t you think
It’s like rain on your 3. day
Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to 6.
He waited his whole damn life to take that 7.
“Well isn’t this nice…”
Well life has a 8. way of sneaking up on you
In your face
A traffic jam when you’re already 11.
And then meeting his 14. wife
A little too ironic…and, yeah, I really do think…
Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
Helping you out
