Lavender's Will

From the album Pie In The Sky


I might not have much time to live

So here’s a list of everything, I have got to give;


To my mother, Rose Lynn Mann, I leave my whole collection

Of specimens and research I’ve got organized outside

Someday my scientific work will prove there’s a connection

Between “The Beast That Roars” and why my Daddy died.


If Mom dies too, then Mr. Brown, my teacher, has to take it

He’s real smart, he taught me well, so he’ll know what to do

And Rob, you take my kitten, but be careful not to break it!

Bye Mom, bye Rob, remember that I always will love you.
