WHEN THEY FINALLY MEET (HIS BALLAD)

k14543903

(Refrain)

When death conquers death

He would finally get to ask

His slippery mortal enemy

And he would be up to the task

(I)

He would probably first ask

What he did so wrong to its claws

That its guards kept watching him

From birth till he tasted those claws

(Refrain)

II

It was first his mother

She housed him with love

But it tore her heart using his coming

Caring beings said she watched from above

(Refrain)

(II)

Then it stretched its long hands

And stole his only brother

When he was barely five

And at ten, added his father

(Refrain)

(III)

When Grandma joined at twelve

Hands begun to point

Accusing him of things so alien

Among which was he and Satan’s joint

(Refrain)

(IV)

And so he flew from town to town

Until Cupid caught him through Yaa

He was glad he had a family

And worshipped the walking grounds of Yaa

(Refrain)

(V)

Yaa was the pot who broke

While carrying his precious water

His tears rained forever

As he pondered over the matter

(Refrain)

(VI)

And then he met with Betty

And found her very witty

He tried to court her daily

Until it again came and took her pretty

(Refrain)

(VII)

So when they finally meet

He would be the interrogator

And would sure torment death

Who would be nothing than an obligator

(Refrain)
