Death

it’s the air of solemn breeze
he has come to take what’s his
not to give but life to cease
he comes from Rome he comes from Greece
his name is death

people cry people weep
but memories of the dead we keep
as we put their lifeless form to sleep
he has come to take them deep
his name is death

shoo shoo! go away we say
forgetting that faithful day
the day we lay six under the hay
he would come you couldn’t say nay
his name is death

with him many have met
with many he has surely dealt
for some he took and others he felt
he takes your breath he takes your wealth
his name is death
