DYING DEGREE

Dresser droors are filled with pocket change

Coupons cut, cigarettes smoked down to the butt,

Is this what dreams are made of!

Adding up subtracting down you find yourself sucking the rind

Dying degree, graying amie

Final payment made - had you forgot?

The rightful owner of one deluxe cemetary plot

Paisley satin lined how apprapoe

What a better way to go

Dying degree, graying amie

No more eating crumbs

When my pension finally comes

Your kids want eat mush anymore 'round me

Dying degree, graying amie
