I was having a drink with my old teacher,
He is 102 now
And this was, he was just, about 97 at that time
And I pour him a drink and
He clicked my glass and said:
Excuse me for not dying.
And i kind feel the same way.
I want to thank you not just for this evening,
But for the many years you've kept my songs alive,
I really appreaciate it.
I don't want anyone to get alarmed,
I know you probabaly have never seen
Any of this before, but it goes by itself.
