There’s one song that Deedee and Snoochie like to play. It’s Cancer by MCR. It’s also Toothless’s anthem. We can’t help but rearrange the lyrics to better fit our own, personal experience with the disease. Every time I hear the song her diagnosis hits me like a stack of bricks dropped on my chest. I know that time is short.
Could you get me a drink?
Cause my lips are chapped and faded
I don’t have the strength to do these simple things
Why must we go every week?
I’ve never been a fan of car rides or the vet
Will you stay til the end
Rub your fingers through my fur
Don’t remember me
All soggy from my fentanyl
Oh the agony
Cause baby, this just ain’t living
And I’m counting all the days til I go
Will you call my Emily
Help her gather all my things
And bury me in all my favorite colors
My sister’s and my brothers…
I will not kiss you
Cause the hardest part of this
Is leaving you
