A Great Man Died


A GREAT MAN DIED

A great man died
And thousands said good-bye
And I was one of them-

When I die
Only a few will say good-bye-

So long as a few who really care
will able to go on with their lives
without me
I don't mind-

Even those who are not great
Must die
And said be goodbye to,
And I one of them-
