Here ya go...

THE SLANGING-MATCH OF LIFE AND DEATH

Said Life, The world is mine,
The flowers and trees, they're all my own,
I am the day and the sunshine.
Said Life, The world is mine.

Said Death, The world is mine,
Your ears are deaf, your eyes are blind,
Your flowers must wither in my bitter wind.
Said Death, The world is mine.

Said Life, The world is mine,
I have soft winds and healing rain,
Apples I have, and bread and wine,
Said Life, The world is mine.

Said Death, The world is mine,
What stirs in dread goes down in pain,
Children wanting for bread are making moan,
Said Death, the world is mine.

Said Life, the world is mine,
Your deadly work, I know it well,
There's meat on Earth for every child,
Said Life, The world is mine.

Said Death, The world is mine,
Your silly sheaves shrivel in my fire,
My work peers into your barn and byre,
Said Death, The world is mine.

Said Life, The world is mine,
Damn your eyes! A gallant heart
Can banish to hell your blackest art.
Said Life, The world is mine.

Said Death, The world is mine.
Your ranting heart, in fine tatters,
He won't leap my prison wall,
Said Death, The world is mine.

Said Life, The world is mine.
Though you build prisons of marble stone
Heart's love you can't imprison,
Said Life, The world is mine.

Said Death, The world is mine,
I have dug a grave, I have dug it deep,
For war and plague will make you sleep,
Said Death, the world is mine.

Said Life, The world is mine,
An open grave is a furrow soon,
You'll not keep my seed from falling in.
Said Life, The world is mine.
