TOLD IT LIKE IT WAS

by CGO



When you're a young man
Is there anything better
They can say about you
Than you took on all comers
And you told it like it was?



When you're a middle-aged man
Is there anything better
They can say about you
Than you had a good woman
And you told it like it was?



When you're an old man
Is there anything better
They can say about you
Than you've made peace with your Maker
And you told it like it was?



When they carve my tombstone
The only thing that I want it to say is
He never took shit from nobody
And he told it like it was
