The Lyrics

...for Alvin... ;-)
I slipped on an escarpment
And fell 99 feet to the rocks
And I split all bones, makin' wife a widow
Mortician fit me in a box
Draw-in' flies - oh my
Maggots sup me like a juicy snack
As it's been five months
Realize skin kinda is turning black

I said Hey! Eeew! There's moss on my shroud!
Hey! Eeew! There's moss on my shroud!
Hey! Eeew! There's moss on my shroud!
Planted in ground and ooze now sprouts
On my shroud baby!

The 'balming fluid is stingin'
Cheapo pine - new casket wears out in time
A noisome, ripe, yellow, foul tint-a
Well I guess I'm putrifyin'
Way I'm decayin's all blue and moist
Won't see bleedin' 'cus it has all been bled
Just now goo feels no good
Wished ya'd let cadaver wither in bed

I said Hey! Eeew! There's moss on my shroud!
Hey! Eeew! There's moss on my shroud!
Hey! Eeew! There's moss on my shroud!
Planted in ground and ooze now sprouts
On my shroud baby!

In the icky mire, coffin up slick phlegm
So untidy to atrophy in ground
Decomposed - carrion diet for beetles
Now I'm nobody, rot is moldy brown
Decayed, I freak out, aglow foxfire
Fungus startin' to teem
I'll be joining the eco-system
Dissolve like slag - leach into the stream

I said Hey! Eeew! There's moss on my shroud!
Hey! Eeew! There's moss on my shroud!
Hey! Eeew! There's moss on my shroud!
Planted in ground and ooze now sprouts
On my shroud baby!

(repeat chorus and fade [away])

Well, I WAS about to have a bedtime snack. NOW, I have no appetite AND I'm afraid to shut out the lights and close my eyes. You know, it's times like these that I wish you two sucked at this. ;D

Well, at least the beetles had it good. If I were Wildman, I'd give it 5 chalupas. :D

Pippin, they're wrong. (I know because I'm always right. ;)) Merry, luckily I didn't dream of being chased by rotting corpses or of being buried alive, after all. I managed to shiver under the covers with a thermos of cofffee and a flashlight until morning. (just kidding. :D)
