O Death (Fables Faun)

O death, o death Can you spare me over till another year O death, o death Please spare me over till another year O death, someone would pray Could you call some other day? The children prayed, the preacher prayed Time and mercy are out of reach "I'l fix your feet so you can't walk Lock your jaw so you can't talk Close your eyes so you can't see This very air comes over with me Death I come to take the soul Leave the body and leave it cold To drop the flesh off of the frame The earth and worm both have a claim" O death, o death Can you spare me over till another year O death, o death Please spare me over till another year My mother comes to my bed Placed a cold towel upon my head My head is warm my feet are cold Death is moving upon my soul O death, how you're treating me You close my eyes so I can't see You hurt my body, you make me cold You move my life right out of my hand O death, o death Can you spare me over till another year O death, o death Please spare me over till another year O death, consider my age Please don't take me at this stage My wealth is all at your command If you would move your icy hand "O the young, the rich or poor Are all alike to me you know No wealth, no land, no silver, no gold Nothing will satisfy but your soul" But o death, o death Can you spare me over till another year O death, o death Please spare me over till another year
