The Lyrics

Too hot topic to leave unused.
When my earthly race - is over, you know - I wanna be cremated
When I've kicked the bucket and my ticking is gone - I wanna be cremated
Just push me in the furnace and just turn on the flame
I don't wanna rot in grave - now that is a shame
I don't wanna be mummified, now that's kinda lame
Burn! Babe! Burn! Burn Babe Burn!

My body may be gone but my soul has energy - I wanna be cremated
That's because of Kinetic Gas Theory - I wanna be cremated
Don't waste that money for casket made of wood
Just put me in a cardboard box and burn me up for good
I don't want to rot in grave and be the maggots' food
Burn! Babe! Burn! Burn Babe Burn!

When the flames die down and I've been reduced to ash - I wanna be cremated
Just gather up my bones and let them cool in stash - I wanna be cremated
Then grind me up and pile me up and put me in an urn
If God won't let me'n Heaven, I have karmic debt to burn
It's time to get reincarnate and have another turn -
Burn! Babe! Burn! Burn! Babe! Burn!

Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba I wanna be cremated
Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba I wanna be cremated
Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba I wanna be cremated
Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba I wanna be cremated

Pacing was a little unsteady, but this parody still cooks! 455

... And think of the electricity that could be generated -- *seriously*. I'm with you. DKTOS, and there seems to be a split decision on pacing from those who know it, but I would vote 5 for content if possible.

One hates to ask for readers, but as you're a Finn, thought you might be a fan of your neighbors, most successful Scandinavian rock group ever, who were inducted into the Hall of Fame on 15 March, and hoped to see you at our two parodies honoring the occasion (and more this week). But no obligation, of course.

Härremigudändå, ABBA ska bli introducerad till Hall of Fame! Javisst är jag stolt över det! If you instead of cremation opt for a really cool (literally!) way of bodily disposal, this one is for you.

Good one Susanna, but you need to go see Sal - hee hee.
