As you grow and roll along
Thinking life is a long, happy song
And your body will never go wrong
Always believing you’ll be young and strong
Then one day you suddenly stiffen
Your body doesn’t want to listen
When sitting in a consulting room
Filled with fear and gathering gloom
Waiting to hear your fate
Have you left it all too late?
Then your life as you know it shatters
But you find out what really matters
It’s not fame or fortune – nothing like!
But silently beg for your life.
