DUKE’S FAVOITE POEM
When I’ve quit this mortal shore
And mosey around this place no more
Please don’t weep, don’t sigh, don’t sob;
I may have struck a better job.
Don’t go and buy a large bouquet
For which you find it hard to pay
Don’t mope around and feel all blue
I may be better off than you.
Don’t tell the folks I was a saint
Or any old thing that I ain’t
If you have jam like that to spread
Please pass it out before I’m dead.
If you have roses, bless your soul
Just pin one in my buttonhole,
While I’m alive and well today,
Don’t Wait Till I’ve Passed Away.
