Marvin the Ace
She said "That's no reason to cry."
I said, "But why did he have to die?"
She explained that it's the way of life.
Then I asked her for a knife.
I wanted to drive it through my heart.
I just knew that we would never part.
She said I was acting way out of line.
I said that he was the best friend of mine.
She said, "All right, let's make a deal."
I said, "O.K., as long as I get to keep the wheel."
A proper burial on the 3rd of May
He was laid to rest in his favorite bed of hay.
I said good-bye and gave him a flower
Then, the rain bagan to shower.
Mom asked if I wanted another mouse,
as we got in the car and drove back to the house,
I tried to explain that no one could ever replace,
my very best friend, Marvin the Ace.
