A Little Sappy, But Not Bad

I saw this in the Dallas Morning News today. It was read this week at the funeral of Lamar Hunt by his daughter. The World Is Mine

Today upon a bus I saw a lovely girl with golden hair She seemed so gay I envied her and wished that I were half as fair Then she rose and hobbled down the aisle She had one leg, but worse a crutch, yet as she passed, a smile Oh, God, forgive me when I whine, I have two legs – the world is mine.

Later on I bought some sweets, the boy who sold them had such charm I thought that I would stop awhile, if I were late 'twould do no harm As we talked, he said, 'Thank you, sir, you've been most kind I like to talk with folks like you, for, as you see, I'm blind' Oh, God, forgive me when I whine, I have two eyes – the world is mine.

Then, as I was walking down the street I saw a strapping boy with eyes so blue, But he just stood and watched the other children play, it seemed he knew not what to do After awhile I said, 'Why don't you play with the other children, dear?' But he just stared straight ahead, and then I knew he couldn't hear Oh, God, forgive me when I whine, I have two ears – the world is mine.

Two eyes to see the sunset glow, Two legs to take me where I wish to go Two ears to tell me all I need to know ... Oh, God, forgive me when I whine, I'm blessed indeed – the world is mine.

Always nice when millionaires and billionaires remind us of how lucky we all are.

Oh gee whiz! Looks like those rich folks won't get to keep their tax cuts.

The US is insolvent.
