Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

NOTE: this song was inspired by Irish music, in the vein of the Pogues, as well as being a song one could sing at an Irish wake

Oh, to be young again would be so grand
The bottom of the hourglass is filled with more sand
But come to think of it I'm still above the land
So, why put off till tomorrow what I can do today, my friend?

(1-2-3-4)

Chorus: Heaven tomorrow, Hell today
The beauty of living is the hell we can raise
Heaven tomorrow, Hell today
When you've been down here this long what's one more day?

Aw, to think that it's wrong to sin
Is wrong in its own right, I like me tails up in me tin
Pennies from heaven just end up in trash bins
You only die once, so, why not live again and again?

Chorus

Oh, to see the errors in our ways
Gives you the right to be a one-eyed man in the hay
But better the blind leading the blind, I say
'Cause needles in haystacks are ****** any way

Chorus
Chorus

When you've been down here this long what's one more day?
When you've been down here this long what's one more day?
