Lyrics

I’m ready for it all, I’m not giving in,

And when I’m ready, I’ll die a happy ma,

I’ve had a great life, done what I wanted to do,

I’ve met some great people, I’ve a great family too


 

Because when you’re born, you’re dying anyway,

You’ve got to get out and enjoy it while you can,

I’m not going away yet, don’t write my off,

I’m living and dying a happy man,


 

All I want to know is that my kids are ok,

As they carry on along their way,

And when I’m gone don’t be falling out,

I Love you all you can have no doubt


 

Because when you’re born, you’re dying anyway,

You’ve got to get out and enjoy it while you can,

I’m not going away yet, don’t write my off,

I’m living and dying a happy man,
