But for lung cancer ( again :o| ). . .

I've got everything going...
Everything's plenty for me.

Got my life,
Got my...spouse,
Got my kids and grandkids, too,
Got my brother,
Got my sister,
Nephews and nieces,
Cousins by the dozens.

Got my friends!
(Don't know of any enemies.)

Had my Father
And my Mother
Uncles and Aunts
Resting in peace.

I can see-
I can hear-
I can smell-
I can taste and chew and swallow-
I can savor-
I can scratch where I itch-
I can hurt-
I can cry-
I can laugh-
I can sing-
I can dance-
I can read-
I can write-
I can pee and I can poo-
bathe or shower-

I'm so fortunate:
Ever grateful!

Now I rock in my rockin' chair
...Have some false teeth
But I got my hair (back).
I hold my grandchildren
In my arms. . .
All I gotta do
Is keep my feet warm.

Keep my feet warm,
Keep my feet warm,
Don't need to act smart
Nor t'do no harm.
For the rest of my life
I've got nothing to lose
Except my warm socks
Or my cold feet blues.
