Hold 'Em loosely

Things eye see
Though perfect they may seem
And highly esteemed they may be
Only for a moment are to be seen:
Hold 'em loosely
-
Some the weather fades and tear
Thieves carry some to sell or to wear
Some grow old, very old and so they die
One thing leading to another
Some just die
-
Things eye see
Though perfect they may seem
And highly esteemed they may be
Only for a moment are to be seen;
Hold 'em loosely.
