All Of Us Are Mortal (Christine McVie, Fleetwood Mac, dies at 79 RIP)




All of us are mortal
All of us will die
Irene Cara has just died
All did say goodbye

Reader, you are mortal
Also you will die
I as poet will also
All will say goodbye

Which then got me to thinking
Where I will go next?
If you get there before me
Just let me know by text




Lyrics below (a classic performance of Don’t Stop)

“Don’t Stop”

[Lindsey Buckingham:]
If you wake up and don’t want to smile
If it takes just a little while
Open your eyes and look at the day
You’ll see things in a different way

[Buckingham and C. McVie:]
Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here
It’ll be here better than before
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone

[Christine McVie:]
Why not think about times to come?
And not about the things that you’ve done?
If your life was bad to you
Just think what tomorrow will do

[Buckingham and C. McVie:]
Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here
It’ll be here better than before
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone

[Buckingham and C. McVie:]
All I want is to see you smile
If it takes just a little while
I know you don’t believe that it’s true
I never meant any harm to you

[Buckingham and C. McVie:]
Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here
It’ll be here better than before
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone

[Buckingham and C. McVie:]
Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here
It’ll be here better than before
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone

[Buckingham and C. McVie:]
Don’t you look back
Don’t you look back
Don’t you look back
Don’t you look back



‘yesterday, today and tomorrow’s gone’
