The Lyrics

Enjoy :)
A hearse is a hearse, a car of curse,
And anyone seeing it should think the worst
That is, of course, unless the hearse is followed by grieving friends

Funeral home source prepares the hearse
That carries the coffin shoved in head-first
Follows a pre-determined course
Cycles up ahead…

People slow down on the road and rubberneck all the way
Peaceful dead creep along ahead right to the cemetery

A hearse is a hearse, a car of curse,
Black “Deathmobile” has replaced once Grim horse
What do expect when life is so short?

Their role is this: Carry the dead
