YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE
You only live once, that’s how it goes.
One life and you’re gone, most evidence shows.
You live for your years, you turn your wheel
Some say you get more years; that’s not the deal
Your life is the least the world puts on your plate
Be fast to the feast, or be late for your fate!
One life all your own, and you’re the price.
One more would be nice, but you don’t live twice
