The Lyrics

Lyrics in {brackets} are sung lightly during instrumental parts. No, I'm not dead yet...
[instrumental intro]

{Dead, I am so dead now}
{I'm lying in the ground}
{I'm pushing up some daisies}
{dah-dum, dah-dah, dah-dah}

Take me to the graveyard
And put me in the ground
I've had my expiration
No pulse can now be found
{No, nouh-uh-uhno, no}

Not long ago with living
But now I am deceased
A lesson in my shortened life
The dead; they no longer speak
{No they don'tno, not a sound}

My heart is like an engine
That has just blown a rod
I wonder just who grieves for me
And will I go with God?
{oh, ohwill I go?}

{I'm flying in the clouds}
{I'm looking down upon you all}
{I hope you all do well}
{do be well}

My life was like cold water
It splashed in some folks face
It mostly was amusing
I tried to show some grace

So take me to that graveyard
And plant me in the ground
I'm passed; no respiration
No more will I be round
{Oh, noI'm so dead}

{I'm pushing up those daisies}
{that's what I do all day}
{It's good work for the lazy}
{Not hard for me that way}
