Gee I'm Glad I Worried About That

I've been listening to all of the cds that I have of Michael's music and this particular song and it's humor struck me, so I am including the lyrics here. They aren't Michael's lyrics, they are W.T. Davidson's but they seem to fit the current situation. I don't think Michael would mind a bit of levity here. This is from his final cd Moonlit Deja Vu.

Gee I'm Glad I Worried About That

I know a book where the hero gets skinned alive--boiled in oil
Hansel and Gretel are cooked to perfection--and wrapped in foil
And I found myself in the stew
I turned red I turned white I turned blue
And under the covers I shuddered the whole night through

Gee I'm glad I worried about that
It's bound to do me good
Just so I know when they lay me out flat
I've done all the worrying I could
Maybe they'll roast me with speeches and honor me
Maybe they'll toast me and think of me somberly
Maybe I'm just a sad sad sack
Gee ain't I glad that I worried about that

Sooner or later you do take a look at your life
And kiss it goodbye
There are an infinite number of hideous ways to die
And though I only get one--I'll imagine an infinite sum
Leaving not one shred of doubt when it's all said and done

Gee I'm glad I worried about that
It's bound to do me good
Just so I know when they lay me out flat
I've done all the worrying I could
Maybe they'll roast me with speeches and honor me
Maybe they'll toast me and drink to me somberly
Maybe I'm just a sad sad sack
Gee ain't I glad that I worried about that

Anthrax and smallpox and big clouds of poison gas
Are coming our way--best be awake and alive and alert
To the dangers every day
And just so we don't forget--they've color coded the threat
Now that you know you can gasp with your very last breath

Gee I'm glad I worried about that
It's bound to do me good
Just so I know when they lay me out flat
I've done all the worrying I could
Maybe they'll roast me with speeches and honor me
Maybe they'll toast me and drink to me somberly
Maybe I'm just a sad sad sack
Gee ain't I glad that I worried about that
