When My Turn Comes


One thing I learned long ago,
a good long moanís a laugh before itís gone,
and so I sail on when others stop to die,
when others stop to die I sail on and on
and on, when others stop to cry I laugh
and moan, when others stop I sail on
and on and on, because a good long
moanís a laugh before itís gone, a laugh
before itís gone, and when my turn comes
Iíll just sail on and on and on. . . .
