Along came the Reaper

He was but a little boy 
        Playing on the ground

Pulling pig tails
                Pushing down innocent babes

Laughing and roaring as he slid down
                     Thud - broke the slide and the boy fell down

Along came the Reaper, to harvest the soul
              I am but a little boy, pleaded his soul

                                                               You been a devil all along, Why cry now ?

Pray give a chance
           I won't let you down

He behaved for a while
       But went back to his guile

Hogged like a swine
                Got drunk with wine

Puffed with weed
              Down the stairs, he fell down
                           Along came the Reaper to harvest his soul 

                                                             It's time to pay for your crime

Pray give a chance
           I won't let you down

He remained loyal to his wife, for a while
       But went back to his guile

Old age caught up with him
         His wife and kids left him
                 He remained all alone
                        His body withered, in pain
 
The ol' man cried for the Reaper
         But he never came along
