  1. Sedoka…
    There are two states in the US
    North Dakota is one
    South Dakota is two
    I’m thinking of writing
    A kareoke song
    Maybe one
    Maybe two

    Life comes down to numbers
    Your date of birth
    And the date
    You succumb

    Cherish the moments
    You have on Earth
    And look to the future
    Enjoy a bicardi and rum
