Upon a heart beat

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Upon a little heart beat

I live my life.

Bomb bomb bomb;

if it stops Iím in strife.

 

And itís been pumping

a thousand million times,

and up till now,

itís doing fine.

 

I check it every once in a while going,

Bomb bomb bomb,

To make sure

Iím still alive.

 

My little clock / besides my brain is my

very most favorite possession.

Going bomb - bomb - bomb

sometime slow / sometimes in quick succession.

 

And when it stops one day

(and I hope that wonít be soon.)

When it stops playing

that bomb bomb tune;

 

Iíll be off somewhere else no doubt,

with another kind of heart,

taking with me all the love of the world

when this body and me depart.
