I think I looked pale an’ I almost kicked the pail.
I was feeling worse so I went to see the nurse.
She hooked me up to an IV and she tested my pee.
She also tested my blood but it looked more like mud.
I took morphine for pain and I went on a medevac plane.
My body wasn’t stable so they put me on the operating table.
The doctor operated with a knife and she saved my life.
I’m just a death cheater so I never met Saint Peter.
I thought of Jesus in the manger ‘cause my life was in danger.
I never thought of my last breath and I never though of death.
I think I had a close shave so I could have been in my grave.
But I needed to live some more whenever I suffer.
It only makes me tougher.
It could have been tragic But it turned out magic.
