The game of life is hard to play
I’m gonna lose it anyway
The losing card of some delay
So this is all I have to say
Suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
I can take it or leave it if I please
And you can do the same thing if you please.
The theme from MASH
As a teenager I loved the programme MASH.
The adventures of the staff of a mobile army surgical hospital in the Korean War.
I particularly liked the theme tune and used to hum and sing it to myself.
One day my mother heard me singing the words of the chorus, and became angry with me. It wasn’t for several years afterwards that I fully understood why.
