Who’d have thought it?

I’m told if I keep active
I wont get Alzheimer’s.
I wont be an intolerable burden;
I’ll keep my dignity right to the end.

And I’ve been told it’s down to me
I’ve got to do my exercises
Healthy food, healthy lifestyle. It’s my duty
I’ve got to do it.

Otherwise it’ll be impossible for my family
To cope with weakness and confusion.
It’s totally unfair of me to live
The way I do.

I thought they loved me like I loved them
Suffering when they suffered
But that moment has gone
And I mustn’t be a burden.

Well…. Who’d have thought it?
