Song: Aunt Madge Said

She fears to die
It comes too soon
It makes her cry

Had she thought
The problem thru
And made her peace
That’s all you do

She brought up five
In a council home
Since they’ve gone
She been alone

Aunt Madge said
My Dad Joe
Did bad things
And no one knows

Aunt Madge said

Some of you
Alive today
Will not see death
Lord Jesus say

He’s a good man that Jesus

The world goes on
Care, don’t care
As if Aunt Madge
Wasn’t there

My Aunt Madge was very lonely
That was easy to tell
She had not really had a life
She had not lived that well

Of this I’m sure
She lived her life
Behind closed doors
As a council wife

Aunt Madge said
She fears to die
It comes too soon
It makes her cry

Oh, my aunt Madge
Oh, my poor aunt Madge

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
