These were the words from a Cantonese a song that just sticks to my mind. I couldn't remember its title.
When I was young, Rediffusion was a major source of entertainment. Cantonese songs were one of my mother's favourites and she would increase the volume so that she could hear it at any part of the house.
This is what the song is about ...
A man and his daughter went to a cemetery to pay respect to someone. The man was a lazy bum. He mistook a few graves to be the one they were looking for. Then he found out that these graves were that of his old friends. He didn't know that they had died.
So his daughter remarked rhetorically : " Your friends all died already? " It sounded a bit funny.
I think the message in the song is to lead a healthy lifestyle as the man's dead friends had unhealthy habits and vices.
