When you're away, I'm restless, lonely, wretched, bored, dejected; only here's the rub, my darling dear, I feel the same when you're near.
Babies haven't any hair;
Old men's heads are just as bare;
Between the cradle and the grave Lies a haircut and a shave.
The dead they sleep a long, long sleep; The dead they rest, and their rest is deep; The dead have peace, but the living weep.
Breathes there a man with hide so tough
Who says two sexes aren't enough?
I burned my candle at both ends, And now have neither foes nor friends.
