That's what you get

you played around in elementary 

than you played around in Jr high

you thought hischool was a joke 

and skipped classes most of the time

some kind of way you made it to colledge

and than stepped completely out of line

going to parties and doing the drugs

you had no shame and felt to smug

but than one day you went on a ride

your drunken soul was driven to die

you crashed into a pole killing your 

your family wondered why did you have to die

but that what you get when joke and play to much

life is not filled with laughter all the time

there is a time for every season which you did not recognize

and now you are gone with your family left too cry.
