Song Meaning

The old man

The old man should die

He should die so that we leave in peace

Mom will stop weeping should the old man died

He comes back in the morning

If he dies Jesus will also rest (Because, mom will stop asking Jesus to intervene in her weeping)

Jesus rose from dead

He rose in Jerusalem.
