The Lyrics

When I die and I'm covered with dirt
Gonna go to the place that's the worst
When it comes my time to go
Gonna go to the furnace down below

Gonna burn in the furnace down below
That's where I'm headed for when I go
When I'm gone and I'm covered with dirt
I'm gonna go to the place that's the worst

Go save yourself
My soul is a bust
Goin' where it never freezes
And I know that when I go
I have a reservation
For a special room below
Got a reservation for a special room below
That's where I'm headed for when I go
When I'm gone and I'm covered with dirt
I'm gonna go to the place that's the worst

Always been a sinner, I love to sin
I've really ticked off Jesus
So you know that when I pass
He's gonna lay the smack down,
He's gonna kick my ass
Oh kick my ass when
I'm on the other side
That's what he's gonna do
Tan my hide
When I'm gone and I'm covered with dirt
I'm gonna go to the place that's the worst
Go to the place that's the worst

PS... just crossed my mind, that if Malcolm had written a song with this title, it would probably have turned out rather different ;-)

Thanks for the ratings, Phil and Billy... and for letting me know I'll be in good company. Sorry about tricking you in with the title -- it worked, though. ;) . If it gets approved, I'm hoping my submission for tomorrow will make up for it. (tempt, tempt)

I knew a guy who named his car "Norman". Why? Because it was a "green bomb". Wha-ha-ha! Seriously, we can keep this site going once we're all there.

Rick: ...and we'll probably get to meet a lot of the artists whose work we parody. :) Thanks for the read and rate!

"But what is evil anyway, is there reason to the rhyme? Without evil there could be no good so it must be good to be evil sometimes." - South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut Whiles that's my favorite down below song, this one's definitely up there, or down there If ya wanna get picky.
