Poorman`s Grave

Minsan talaga ganito, walang magawa at tila nanghihinayang sa bawat oras at araw na nagdadaan. Ang hirap umasa sa mga nakatataas dito sa opisina. Muli na namang nangangapa ang bawat isa sa mga hakbang na gagawin ng management. Hayst! Kaya heto nakikinig na lang ako ng peyborit kong bandang Eraserheads habang nagpa-practice ng Visual Studio.Net gamit ang pambihirang C# (hanep talaga!). Heto ang pinaka-gusto ko sa lahat ng kanta nila – Poorman’s Grave. Malamang kaya ko nagustuhan ito ay dahil sa maraming kababayan natin ang nangangarap na umangat at kasama na ako doon, di naman ako mangingibang-bansa kung di ako nangangarap. At sa kantang ito ay ipinakikita na ang mga taong hirap sa buhay ay nangangarap na kahit man lang sa kanilang kamatayan ay makaranas sila ng ginhawa o makita sa kanilang di sila salat sa buhay – tama sinabi ko? hmm…  Ihihinga ko lang muna sandali ang saloobin ko (nag-e-emo lang po). Heto na ang saloobin ko…. kung hindi lang sa pamilya ko ay di ako magtitiis. Ayan, yun lang po hehe! Tapos na. So heto enjoy niyo na ang lyrics ng peyborit kong kanta. (Sidenote: Nagandahang kasi ako sa lyrics, try nyong basahin)

I know a man who had nothing
He was a poor man all his life
He lived in a shack by the roadside
With starving kids and a loving wife

He went to church every Sunday
He prays from morning until night, he said
Good Lord, why have you forsaken me
When everything I did I thought was right

Refrain:

Now my Life is coming to an end
There’s only one thing I’m wishing for
All my days I have never sinned
So I hope you wont ignore
What I’m asking for…

Chorus I:

Oh honey when I die
Dress me up in a coat and tie
Give my feet a pair of shoes
That I haven’t wore in a long time
Put me in a golden box
Not a cross on a pile of rocks
Bury me where the grass is green
And the gates are shining…

Chorus II:

Oh honey when I die
Give me a bed of roses
Where I could lie
I’m gonna use up all the money that I saved
‘Coz I dont wanna lie in a poor man’s grave…

I know a man who had nothing
He dreamed of satin sheets all his life
He lived and worked like a dog
Licking every boot he sees just to survive

He comes home drunk every night
Wakes up the kids and talks to his wife, he said
Honey you have been so good to me
I only wish we had a better life

Refrain II:

And now my lifes coming to an end
There’s only one thing I’m wishing for
All my days I have lived in shame
So I hope you wont ignore
Just what I’m asking for…

Chorus I:

Oh honey when I die
Dress me up in a coat and tie
Give my feet a pair of shoes
That I haven’t wore in a long time
Put me in a golden box
Not a cross on a pile of rocks
Bury me where the grass is green
And the gates are shining…

Chorus III:

Oh honey when I die
Give me a bed of roses
Where I could lie
I’m gonna use up all the money that I saved
‘Coz I dont wanna lie in a poor man’s…

Oh honey when I die
Give me a bed of roses
Where I could lie
I’m gonna use up all the money that I saved
‘Coz I dont wanna lie in a poor man’s grave…
