The Lyrics

I did a search on this song, and couldn't believe it hasn't been done. So here it is.
They say everyone can be replaced
They notify your next of kin
The old grim reaper we all face
Takes just one jerk to do us in

Right to the end I'm whining
But that worries me the least
Any long fall, any hard wall
I shall be deceased

They say every man gets an infection
They say every man must croak
Get the "chair" or an injection
Or the chamber where you choke

Right to the end I'm whining
Aging, chances are increased
From a gunshot, or a crackpot
I shall be deceased

Standing next to me in this crowded mall
Is a man who's yelling, "Jesus Saves"
Right or wrong, find out all
When we're lying in our graves

Right to the end I'm whining
As I'm tackling the beast
From a hard push, or from George Bush
I shall be deceased

I usually stay away from "Bush-bashing" or any other current references, so many other people here do it so well. But I needed a rhyme, and that wins every time. (Unlike Bush)

Richard A. Duncan, What's all this business I hear about you being "diseased?" Why, you've barely been sick a day in your life!...huh?...oh...Never mind!
