Bucket List (To Die A Happy Man)


I keep a list of things to do,
A simple list before I'm through
I have them numbered on both hands
To die a happy man

Sail down the Nile on a barge
Free fall for a mile from the stars
Parachute from an aeroplane
Have coffee with an honest man

Oh, to die a happy man

See Antarctica in spring
Gain the trust of a beautiful woman
Walk the dark side of the moon
Meet a legend of music, craft out a tune

Oh, to die a happy man

Buy a comfortable pair of shoes
See Machu Pichu's views
And drive through Paris unharmed
Oh, to die a happy man

Oh, to die a happy man

I keep a list of things to do,
A simple list before I'm through
I have them numbered on both hands
To die a happy man

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
