All his things are here (updated version)
All his things are around here, in the wardrobe and in the drawers
The man himself has gone
But all his things are here
Don’t put your things in that drawer, that’s drawer’s already in use
But it’s full of the things of a dead man
And he’s no longer here.
It’s cold out tonight, so very cold, so why don’t you use this scarf?
It’s the scarf of a dead man, a man who’s passed away
He’s hardly going to need it as he’s no longer here.
Don’t use that glass, there’s a man who used to use it
He drank red wine till he passed away
So now he'll never use it again.
All his things are around here, in the cupboards and on the shelves
In the garage there are jars and jars of screws,
Just waiting to be used.
Perhaps its time to clear his old things out, they’ll never be used again
Death means going away
And never coming back again . .
