From the President of the United States, to the lowliest rock and roll star
The doctor is in and he’ll see you now. He don’t care who you are
Some get the awful, awful diseases
Some get the knife, some get the gun
Some get to die in their sleep
At the age of a hundred and one“Life’ll Kill Ya”
Warren Zevon, 2000
