I went yesterday and had my esophagus stretched. My food was getting lodged again. I had it done once before in 2005. I was sedated so I didn't feel anything except this morning my throat is a little irritated. No big deal!
" I AIN'T DEAD YET!"
My hair is white and I'm almost blind,
The days of my youth are far behind.
My neck is stiff, I can't turn my head...
Can't hear one-half of what's being said
My legs are wobbly, can hardly walk...
But glory be, I can surely talk.
And this is the message I want you to get,
I'm still a-kickin'...I ain't dead yet.
My joints are stiff, won't move in their sockets,
And nary a dime is left in my pocket.
So maybe you think I look like heck,
But still I do have a whole lot of fun,
I've got lots of friends, so kind and so sweet,
And still many more that I'll never meet.
Oh, this wonderful world of ours,
Shade and sunshine and beautiful flowers.
So you just take it from me, you bet...
I'm glad I'm livin'....I ain't dead yet!
I've got corns on my feet and in-growing nails,
And do they hurt: Here plain language fails.
To tell you my troubles would take too long,
If I tried you surely would give the gong!
I go to church and Sunday School too,
For I love the story that ever is new.
And when I reach the end of my row,
And as I leave this house of clay,
I hope to my Heavenly Home I will go.
If you listen closely, I'm quite apt to say...
"Well folks, I've left you, but don't forget,
I've just passed on, but....I AIN'T DEAD YET!"
