Like a box of chocolates, mama said,
that’s what life was like.
Like floating around on a breeze, mama said.
Mama said we all have a destiny,
but I don’t know about that!
You have to do the best, mama said,
with all God gave you. Do the best.
Mama said stupid is as stupid does.
I’m not a smart man.
We’ll live ‘til we die. Mama said,
dying is a part of life.
That’s all I have to say about that.
