Ooh death Whooooah death Won't you spare me over 'til a another year? Well what is this that I cant see With ice cold hands taking hold of me Well I am death none can excel I'll open the door to heaven or hell Whoa death someone would pray Could you wait to call me another day The children prayed the preacher preached Time and mercy is out of your reach I'll fix your feet so you can't walk I'll lock your jaw so you can't talk I'll close your eyes so you cant see This very hour come and go with me Death I come to take the soul Leave the body and leave it cold To drop the flesh up off the frame Dirt and worm both have a claim Ooh death Whooooah death Won't you spare me over 'til a another year? My mother came to my bed Placed a cold towel up on my head My head is warm my feet are cold Death is moving upon my soul Oh death how you treating me You closed my eyes so I can't see Well you hurting my body you make cold You run my life right out of my soul Oh death please consider my age Please don't take me at this stage My wealth is all at your command If you will move your icy hands Oh the young, the rich, or poor How will like me no (?) No wealth no land no silver or gold Nothing satisfies me but your soul Ooh death Whooooah death Won't you spare me over 'til a another year? Won't you spare me over 'til a another year? Won't you spare me over 'til a another year?
