The Lyrics

Cremation is the death for me
I don't want to fertilize a tree
I think that all dead flesh should burn
Keep your burial, give me that ash in urn

New earth is where I'd rather be
I want a headstone over me
I just adore the family plot
Keep your matches
The fire gets way to hot

EDDIE: Do-do-do-do No worms!
EVA: Do-do-do-do No burns!
EDDIE: Do-do-do-do Charcoal!
EVA: Do-do-do-do Big hole

EDDIE: You are my death
EVE: Goodbye smokey breath

BOTH: Cremation do or die.....

Very original and excellent and well paced with the original. This is one of those little gem parodies that come along every once in a while.

Never had a song about cremation before. But the way Eddie Albert is going, he may not need it for awhile. RIP Eva though.;(

Great work Rick! If I were Eddie Albert, any option to get away from Eva Gabor would have been acceptable!
