Last week, while sitting in the park,
Two dear old friends stopped by,
We sat and talked of younger years,
And, "My, how time does fly!"

"Why, I remember", Archie said,
"When Coke was just a nickel"
"And you reached inside a barrel,
For a big, fat, juicy pickle".

Henry said, "I'd mail a postcard,
For a single copper penny".
"And at night turn on the radio,
And listen to young Jack Benny".

"Amos and Andy were the big time,
And the Little Rascals, too.
Fibber McGee and Molly,
Roy Rogers and Mister Magoo".

"Those were the days" I said,
"Really great, By God"
"Today you've got computers,
The Internet and the IPod".

I'd like to tell the frantic world,
If only it would listen,
"Embrace the simpler life...
You don't know what you're missin'"

Three elderly men in the park one day
Were engrossed in the subject of death,
They discussed how they hoped they would be recalled
When each took his final breath.

'Let's picture the scene in the church' said John
'With our relatives standing by;
What do we hope they'll say of us
As they bow their heads and cry?

When they look down at us lying there,
When our spirits have flown away.
I wonder what their words will be.
What would we like them to say?

For myself, I hope they'll call me good,
A man who's been mild and kind;
I hope they'll say I've been scholarly
With an ever-eager mind.

What about you, Sam?' he went on,
What do you hope they'll say,
All your family members
On that sad and fateful day?'

'I hope that they'll say I've been strong-willed,
A good fellow in a jam.
I hope that they'll say they'll miss me,
Miss me a lot' said Sam.

'Now it's your turn Fred, said the other two;
'Don't look so disapproving!'
Said Fred 'I hope they all shout out
