It’s been the worse year for loss, that we can ever remember,
There’s another man down, before the end of December.
He was a friend a brother and somebody’s son,
A husband a father, a special someone.

Rich, poor or famous, or just ‘one of us’,
Whichever road they walked, it was ever thus.
Another man down, in our tears and our laughter,
Their memories will remain, for many years after.

Another man down, he may have left kids and a wife,
All the more reason, to rejoice in his life.
When we think of him, we should not be in pain,
We should remember the sunshine, and not just the rain.

Let’s raise a glass and a smile, and still talk of him lately,
Another man down, we will all miss him greatly.
Keep sharing his memory, whilst we all still have breath,
His life must not end just because of his death.

To all those that have passed on, in this terrible year,
We are all so thankful, for the time you were here.
Our lives have been stronger because you were around,
So, the toast from us all is ‘another man down’.
