Question Of Life


(Dedicated to my soul)

I keep on asking
everyone I find
But who will be so kind
to help me stop asking?

I need an answer
before this night falls
I stand behind the walls
of time waiting for an answer

What is life worth?
All the love and pain;
All the loses and gain
What is it all worth?

If today I fall to death,
what shall my memory be?
Where shall I go beyond this sea,
when I drown in the sea of death?

And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
