"Dying" is a song by Colin Moulding. It appeared on the 1986 album Skylarking.


It frightens me when you come to mind

The day you dropped in the shopping line

And my heart beats faster when I think of all the signs

When they carried you out your mouth was open wide

The cat went astray and the dog did pine for days and days

And we felt so guilty when we played you up

When you were ill, so ill

What sticks in my mind is the sweet jar

On the sideboard. And your multicolored tea cosy

What sticks in my mind is the dew-drop hanging off your nose

Shrivelled up and blue

And I'm getting older, too

But I don't want to die like you

Don't want to die like you
