Put me on


by Nancy Snipper

 

Put me on a desert island

where no one else can roam,

with my piano and my books

to spend each day alone.

 

Put me on a desert island
 
where friend and foe don't go,

Pack the pillow and the pills

so I can die alone.

 

Make sure to play Ravel and Bach,

Brahms and a merry jig.

And as my life begins to fade

let everybody sing.
