Lyrics

A brand new baby was born yesterday just in time
Papa cried baby cried said your tears are like mine
I heard some words from a friend on the phone didn't sound so good
The doctors gave him two weeks to live

The creation of this song belongs in the whelm of Life- alive & kicking! It's wonderful in the aspect of the Big Picture of our flawed Human Race... one passes away and a new spirit arrives... Yee-Haw!

Sad yes, but i think the point of the song is a lighter one. Life ends but new life begins. What better way to make sense of death in a time of sadness.
