Planning Other Things

She was minding her own business

When the angel came along

With all this funny rigmarole

About a brand new song


There’s going to be a baby

And you will be the mum

The baby will be great

But it won’t all be fun


Life is what happens

Said Lennon a famous time

When we are busy planning

Other things – good line


In his case life was ended

Upon a cruel street

His words live on – ‘Imagine’

He hadn’t planned that meet


And Mary at the cross

This was not the script

Except to fulfil the Scripture

This child from life was ripped


But life really is what happened

While the priests planned other things

They posted guards around a tomb

To prevent a rising king
