As I walked out one day, one day I met an old man all on the way His head was bald His beard was gray His clothing made of the cold earthen clay 2x I said old man what man are you? What country were you born into? My name is Death, cannot you see? All kings and princes must bow down to me 2X Oh, I have come to take your soul, To leave your body and leave it cold, To drop the flesh from off your frame. The earth and worms both have their claim 2x Oh Death, oh Death, if this be true Please give me time to reason with you Oh give me time to bring you round Don’t let me lie in the cold, cold ground 2x I'll give you gold and jewels rare I'll give you costly rich robes to wear I'll give you all my earthly share If you will grant me a little while And give me time in the light and air Oh lady, lay your jewels aside No more to glory in your pride No wage, no wealth, no silver and gold, I ask for nothing but your poor soul. 2x Oh lady, lay your money down I need no robes, I need no crown And now, my dear, make no delay Your time is come and you must away And you must come to clay “Oh Death, oh Death please give me time To fix my heart and change my mind.” “Your heart is fixed, your mind is bound And I have the shackles for to drag you down.” 2x In two months’ time this young girl died Let this be on my tombstone, she cried: Ladies, make much of your time Here lies a young girl cut down in her prime 2x

I can't begrudge you the love you find For I have found my own Still I can't quite say That I do not mind When I see how dispassionate we have grown I can't quite say that I do not mind When I ask how you are You respond in kind I'm doing alright, How you doing? I'm doing alright I can't say the absence feels like a loss It just feels like a part of the sky Still I can't quite say that we stopped because Of any one question with no reply I can't quite say that we stopped because our bodies fell victim to natural laws I'm doing alright How you doing? I'm doing alright I can't complain that we never kissed Or did what we wanted to do Still I can't quite say what we would have missed After all the long nights That you saw me through I can't quite say what we would have missed The world we created Might still exist I'm doing alright How you doing? I'm doing alright
