There was a man, who thought all the world's a stage
Wondered about the part - that he had to play
Born into some money, was always well to do
Saved every penny til the whole day was through
One day this gentleman, gave it all away
Died in his sleep they say, the very next day

All he got to keep was what he gave away
All he got to keep was what he gave what he gave
All he got to keep was what he gave away
All he got to keep was what he gave away

Johnny is an actor, if you ask that what he'll say
Knows every line of every act he's played
Ran into some trouble, a couple years ago
Walkin down the street, in San Francisco
Said that his life changed, when he got turned onto hash
Saw his friends all running, when he came up short of cash

He knows every line in every act he?s played
But they?re long forgotten... on his dying day

Andy is a sergeant, a platoon at his command
Follows every order, watches every man
Last night he dreamed, and woke up in a sweat
Thought he'd heard a bomb truck, go off in his head
He waits and prays for the day his tour is through
If the bomb goes off tomorrow, what is he to do?

Jesse was a carpenter, earned bread with his hands
Tough to make a living, but by his work he'd stand
Gave it all his best, quality they say
But his joy and pride, was to watch his children play
Many years of life led to his dying day
When his children gathered round, to bless him on his way
