"Oh Death" as written by and Tony Mcphee Jo-ann Kelly....
What is this that I can't see
With icy hands takin' hold of me?
I am Death, none can excel
I hold the keys to heaven and hell

Chorus

Oh, Death, Oh, Death
Won't you spare me over for another year

Mother, Mother come to my bed
Place a cold towel upon my head
My head's so hot, my feet so cold
Fell Death is moving in upon my soul

Chorus

Children cried, the preacher preached
Time and mercy are out of reach
"Death," I heard somebody say,
"Won't you come back some other day
"My wealth is all at your command
"If you'll only remove your icy hand."
No wealth, no money, no silver, no gold
Nothing satisfies me but your soul

Chorus

I will lock your jaws so you can't talk
Lock your feet so you can't walk
Gonna close your eyes so you can't see
This very hour come and go with me

Chorus
