""His days are ..." in lyrics

Roberto Torres - Old Horse

desires come together

Horse is put out to pasture and his days are numbered
and he leaves in the morning taking little hurried steps

Simón Díaz - Old Horse

The horse is put out to pasture
And his days are numbered
He crosses the plains with a hurried step

Madness - Michael Caine

And all I wanted was a word or photograph to keep

His days are numbered he walks round and round in circles
There is no place he can ever call his own

Bass Sultan Hengzt - AFD (Deportation Anthem)

I'd say *beep* *beep* he mentioned me once
(Al-Gear)
No problem, then his days are numbered
(Hengzt)
