A Little Something

I would rather have a little something than nothing at all
A simple little pleasure before I take  the fall
Something is better than nothing when Angels come to call
I would tell them I had something, I didn’t live small.

I would rather be a little something than nothing at all
Be able to not only stand, but stand up tall
Knowing that when the time comes I will have to fall
Then I would just climb back up the wall.

I would rather see a little something than nothing at all
To say, “I went to Italy” and not just the mall
Go to china and walk the great wall
Get out of the house, do anything, get on the ball.

I would rather feel a little something than nothing at all
trying to really live my life now, enough with the stall
I know I must learn to walk after I learn to crawl
Living for nothing is something and it won’t do at all.
