Still Gonna Die




For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. -    1 Timothy 4:8  

Still Gonna Die by Old Dogs (1998)


So your taking better care of your body, becoming more aware of your body, responding to your bodies needs, everything you hear and read about diets, nutrition, and sleeping position, and detoxifying the system and buying machines that they advertise to help you exercise, herbs to revitalize you if your traumatized, soaps that will sanitize, spays to deodorize, liquids to neutralize, acids and pesticides, free weights to maximize your strength and muscle size, shots that will immunize, pills to reenergize you but remember that for all your pain and gain eventually the story ends the same


So you quit smoking but your still gonna die, cut out coking but your still gonna die

Eliminate everything fatty or fried, and you get real healthy but your still gonna die

Stop drinking booze and your still gonna die, stay away from Kool’s and son your still gonna die

You can cut out coffee and never get high but your still gonna, still gonna, still gonna die

Your still gonna, still gonna, still gonna die, still gonna, still gonna, still gonna die

You can even give a roller one more try but when the music is over your still gonna die

Put seat belts in your car your still gonna die, cut nicotine and tar your still gonna die

You can exercise that cellulite off of your thigh, get slimmer and trimmer but your still gonna die

Stop kissing and tell your still gonna die, you can eat a lot of oat bran but your still gonna die

You can search for UFO’s up in the sky, they might fly you to Mars where your still gonna die

Your still gonna, still gonna, still gonna die, still gonna, still gonna, still gonna die

And all the Reeboks and Nikes and Diggers you buy, you can jog up to heaven and your still gonna die

Drink Ginseng tonic your still gonna die, try high colonics your still gonna die

You can have yourself frozen suspended in time, but when they do thaw you out your still gonna die

You can have safe sex your still gonna die, you can switch to Crest but your still gonna die

You can get rid of stress, get a lot of rest, get an aids test, enroll if Estes
Move out west where it’s sunny and dry, and you’ll live to be a hundred but your still gonna die

Your still gonna, still gonna, still gonna die, still gonna, still gonna, still gonna die

So you better have some fun before you say bye-bye
Cause your still gonna, still gonna, still gonna still gonna,
Still gonna, still gonna, still gonna die

Yes, the important thing is the next question.....And where will I spend eternity. Thank God I know where I will spend it, in the loving arms of my Jesus because He purchased it for me and did it ALL for me. I believe!

Definitely true, but also thankful that He gives us the wisdom to take care of our 'temples' so that we can live a long, productive life in His service!

Yes,the point is,we will all die some day. But it will only be on God's appointed day. Hopefully, everyone is ready to meet their maker and spend eternity with HIM!!

At my age, I am better off to bend my knees in prayer than to do deep knee bends for exercise. At least when I kneel by my bed, I can take hold of it to get up!

Sorry, Maxine, at my poor attempt at humor, but your post had such a good message - we are all "gonna die" and our spiritual fitness is most important, as well as taking care of the body He has given us.

"godliness is proffitable unto al things, having promise of the life that is now, and of that which is to come.: Amen!
