Good old fashioned, no-holds-barred American music.

lyrics

The doctor told me, you’d better slow down,
or your gonna be in trouble.
I asked doctor O’boogie, now what are my chances,
of drinkin’ on (for) tonight.

Your time has come, like the setting sun,
your time has come, a life cut short.
Days gone by, I feel like cryin,
what can I say, ain’t it a shame.

He said boy, your condition isn’t pretty,
this bad news, ain’t no joke.
Jack, it’s breaking you down,
you’re just melting away,
I never thought that I would, have to pay.

Your time has come, like the setting sun,
your time has come, a life cut short.
Days go by, sometimes I cry,
what can I say, ain’t it a shame.

I want to live! Before I fly away,
I don’t wanna die, I'm not going down without a fight.
Bargain with God and I’ll be a good boy.

Maybe I’ll freeze, just another cool breeze,
I’m cryin’, dyin’, in the night.
So awaken me, when the ship gets there,
I'm blasting off for a ride to the other side.

Your time has come, like the setting sun,
your time has come, a life cut short.
Days gone by, I feel like cryin’,
what can I say, ain’t it a shame.
