How will I survive?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When I was five or six years old,
My cute pet hamster died.
I shed a flood of bitter tears,
But somehow I survived.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I failed O-Level Chemistry,
Which is no cause for pride.
I flunked Geography as well,
Yet nonetheless survived.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A while ago I bought some shares,
Whose value promptly dived.
That hurt, I got my fingers burnt,
But here I am, survived.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I’ve known some setbacks in my time,
Still, always I’ve got by,
Through trying to remain upbeat,
And look on the bright side.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Now gloomy thoughts swarm round my mind,
Like bees around a hive.
The Football Season’s reached its end,
And that’s enough to drive

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Me round the bend with wondering
How I’ll fill up my time,
And not be plunged into despair,
Or drift off into crime.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Not one League match the whole of June,
Nor any in July!
A spell as barren as the moon,
Oh, how will I survive?
