Your worth to me

Kids grown up, they’ve both moved out

They have families of their own

Now you’re just empty nesters

All you do is sit and moan

You’ve reached  the demarkation point

Where your lives go separate ways

You both would like the other gone

You’re both counting the days

At first you were the world to me

I meant all that I said

But now that thirty years have passed

You’re worth more to me dead

You’re both insured like crazy

The house is free and clear

Did I mention, there’s a pension?

These are all that you hold dear

We no longer share vacations

You have your friends, I have mine

And it seems when we’re together

Al we do is bide our time

At first you were the world to me

I meant all that I said

But now that thirty years have passed

You’re worth more to me dead

We still have sex, but not together

We both eat, but never dine

We live as singles, although married

You’ve your friends and I have mine

When you sleep, I check your breathing

Just to see if you’re alive

I want you dead, but I won’t kill you

I just think of things you won’t survive

At first you were the world to me

I meant all that I said

But now that thirty years have passed

You’re worth more to me dead

I used to love you more than ever

For our two kids, it’s you I thank

But now that love is for another

That love is for what’s in your bank

We have no interests left worth sharing

When we’re alone we make no sound

You know that we just want the other

In a box six feet below the ground

At first you were the world to me

I meant all the things  that I said

But now that thirty years have passed

You’re worth  much more to me dead

At first you were the world to me

I meant all the things  that I said

But now that thirty years have passed

You’re worth  much more to me dead
