Rake up all the leaves in pleasant valley
It's the last day of my visit upstate New York
To pay respects to the old man

He's still got his sense of humor but his body fails him
He's surrounded by loved ones but that only goes so far
And does he know where he is? I doubt it

Jack the lion roaring his last, like a vision sent from the past
Bedside, crying, holding his hands strong hands

Finally get a moment alone with the old man
He's having trouble breathing and he's not the only one
He wonders where time goes and why we haven't spoken for so long

He regrets it, he forgets it and none too soon
Because he's closing his eyes and fading

We thank you for uniting
We thank you for the 'cause
We thank you for the lion
We thank you for the claws

Come see him again
Come see him again
Come see him again
Come see him again

Bop bop bop

Jack the lion roaring his last, like a vision sent from the past
Bedside, crying, holding his hands strong hands
