The Lyrics

Here's an excellent free MIDI sound file of the entire original song "Silver Threads And Golden Needles": ....... http://bennieshepherd.com/SilverThreadsAndGoldenNeedles.mid ...... "Alcor" was incorporated in 1972 as the Alcor Society for Solid State Hypothermia. The name was changed to Alcor Life Extension Foundation in 1977. Alcor offers cryogenic preservation of either cadavers or heads for people who hope to be revived in the future when medical science is sufficiently advanced.
I don't want your mausoleum
With cobwebs and dusty gloom
All I want's a vacuum bottle
To be my Thermos tomb

You might think that I am crazy
But I'm all right in the head
I'll find myself tomorrow
Rising thawed-out from the dead

Frozen heads and cold dead people
They will be new friends of mine
When Alcor chills down my body
To minus-one-ninety-nine

You can buy new life with money
For a distant future time
Frozen heads and cold dead people
They're chilled-out and feelin' fine


When the Reaper comes to take me
On my final Earthly day
Can't wait to see Grim's expression
When he's sent on his way

Fill my champagne glass with lots of
Liquid nitrogen sublime
And I'll toast the old Grim Reaper
Saying "Grim, it's not my time!"

Frozen heads and cold dead people
They will be new friends of mine
In suspended animation
At minus-one-ninety-nine

In my will I clearly stated
That Alcor gets every dime
Frozen heads and cold dead people
They're chilled-out and feelin' fine

Frozen heads and cold dead people
They're with Red Sox Number Nine
Here's an excellent free MIDI sound file of the entire original song "Silver Threads And Golden Needles": ....... http://bennieshepherd.com/SilverThreadsAndGoldenNeedles.mid

Loved it! esp. the line..'Frozen heads and cold dead people.' Even though the subject was somewhat serious, the music made me want to yell 'yee-haw' 5's

"Silver Threads And Golden Needles" was originally a Wanda Jackson song, but it became an American country music hit when it was performed by Dusty Springfield and The Springfields. Since then, it has been covered by many others, including Janis Joplin, Linda Rondstadt, Dolly Parton, and others.

"Silver Threads and Golden Needles" was written by Jack Rhodes and Dick Reynolds.

Johnny D - Great job here, JD. Really clever and imaginative rhyming. slipping you some 'frozen' fives for this. Looks like we will be plumbing the various levels of death & destruction quite a bit now. Oh, well, at least that will solidy our standing as 'Real Americans'...
