"Former Lorry Driver"

Oooh I’m a former lorry driver I had to give it up The tumour on my gall bladder knocked me off the road

When I started to lose my appetite, I was given a scan Anaemia struck my body too, I had lost ten pounds

So I’ll enjoy the little time that is left and spend it with the ones I love Though I’m bitter now I’m going to wait for death calmly – I’ve got six months to live

I have planned my own funeral I chose the coffin I’ll lie in We took our money out of the bank and spent a last Christmas together

The bad news came so I got a motorbike – It’s a dream that I had always wanted to buy As for my wife, she drives a new car, she’ll be independent after I die

So I’ll enjoy the little time that is left and spend it with the ones I love Though I’m bitter now I’m going to wait for death calmly – I’ve got six months to live

You’re only suffering from an abscess It is not cancer, it is harmless It means you won’t leave us so soon

I don’t get it – I’m so devastated – I’m an absolute wreck The powerful drugs that I needlessly took have destroyed my health

Far from being delighted by this news, I don’t know how I’ll cope This reprieve has ruined my life – I really thought I’d die
