The Lyrics

He was laid out on a gurney
He was a man who lost his life
He had ants and worms and dirt and things
There was blood and flesh in strings
His torn clothes were wet, there were flies with a buzz
But his skull had no brain
The police looked all around the guy
But his brain could not be found

I'm tying a toe tag on a corpse with no brain
It was found lying in a storm drain
It looks a lot like he was hit by a train
But then again he might have fell from a plane
La, la la, la la la la, la la la, la la

His rotten body smells like old fish chum
There's a big hole in his head
But there's no brain in, no not one crumb
It was all gone, there was not one shred
And the body was cold and had patches of mold
I wondered how long he'd been dead

You see I'm tying a toe tag on a corpse with no brain
It was found lying in a storm drain
It looks a lot like he was hit by a train
But then again he might have fell from a plane
La, la la, la la la la, la la la, la la
He was found in a pile of debris
He was a real bad sight to see
He had ants and worms and dirt and things
There was blood and flesh in strings
The maggots eat the dead flesh and the flies buzz around
It was a bad sight to think of
It was a pity that the brain was not found
But they found his shoes and one glove

You see I'm tying a toe tag on a corpse with no brain
It was found lying in a storm drain
It looks a lot like he was hit by a train
but then again he might have fell from a plane
La, la la, la la la la, la la la, la la

What do you get when you have Dick Cheney standing next to George W. Bush? A corpse, with no brain!
