And now someone else is getting all your best
From the same pen, three or four years apart
`i would go out tonight, but I haven't got a stitch to wear`
'take me out tonight, where there`s music and there`s people and they're young and alive`
A little context helps with this one too, as it's author was, what, 25 when he wrote it? I guess he was old for someone who had only 27 years to live.

In the event of something happening to me
there is something I would like you all to see
It's just a photograph of someone that I knew

Well, I heard they castrated Castro
