His leaving do was like a wake
With the guest of honour living
We drank into the night
And sent our final blessings

He played bass in a covers band
Every note pre-written
But his gnarled hands
Could no longer hold them

Some people knew, some were unaware
Some people cared, and some didn't
I guess that's the best you can expect
From a quiet retirement
