Now I Am A Lucky Man – Written Friday 7th July 2001 (Aged 26)

Now I Am A Lucky Man

what do i do now
now i am a lucky man
the snake has grown legs
the fight does not seem to hard
the snake has become a lizard
the fighter,
a softly spoken dancer
what do i do now
without my daily dose of pain
now i am a lucky man
who will groom my mane
now i am not longer lion tinged
what do i do now,
i am blessed but those around me
i am not a family man
i could never man my family
the boat is always keel up
what do i do now,
now i am a lucky man
