The clock on the mantle is starin' at me it hasn't frame now for more than a week
The radio on the table yeah it's broken too
It just sits and listens while I sing the blues
I guess I could fix all these things if I just had the time
So don't say I'm lucky to be living cause if this is living I wonder how it feels to die

The woman I loved is gone gone gone gone
And she took the music to life's sweet happy song
Now a heart just can't sing when it's melody is gone
Don't say I'm lucky to be living if this is living I wonder how it feels to die

Now there's the lawn that needs a mowin' and as weeds in the flowed-bed
A mouse just ran across my table and he's almost starved to death
Well I reckon I could take care of all these things
Oh Lord if I just had the time
Don't say I'm lucky to be living for if this is living I wonder how it feels to die
(For if this is living) I wonder how it feels to die
