even if the planet’s dying
it could be worse
with fifty trillion stars
we’re probably not the first

orig 8 verses:

1.
i’m inna wheelchair
but it could be worse
i could be in a casket
ridin’ inna hearse

2.
hard to use my left hand
but it could be worse
at least i got my right
to write this chorus and this verse

3.
i’m nearly 51
but it could be worse
i could be in the 27 club
beyond any doctor or any nurse

4.
it looks really bad
but it could be worse
my daily task is to
make this a blessing and not a curse

5.
it is what it is
and it ain’t what it ain’t
it could be better or could be worse
but it ain’t for the feint

6.
life is what you make it
but it could be worse
you could make a pig’s ear
from a silken purse

7.
even if the planet’s dying
it could be worse
the odds are, with 50 trillion stars
we’re not the first

8.
when you’re born you’re gonna die
but it could be worse
you could live forever
that might seem a curse
