mister reaper

The reaper man's comin to take me away

He's comin from a far long way

I'm not yet ready to meet my fate

Please mister reaper man, wipe my slate 


He has no time for these troubles of mine

Another day longer won't pay my fine

Too dark is he to feel my fear

His hands are close his breath is near 


Hey mister reaper man

I don't think you understand

Although I stagger as fast as I can

You'll always have the upper hand


I stumble first before the fall

I don't get up but still I crawl

I hear his steps he's almost with me

I am blind to all he can see


I feel his fingers upon my shoulder

I knew right then I won't get no older

The day is done and the struggles lost

I hope the price was worth the cost
