The Lyrics

It's all the same, only the days will change
Everyday it seems we're wasting away
Another place where the faces are so cold
I'd work all night, Just to get back home

I'm a miner, on a steel cart I ride
I'm recovered am I dead or alive
Recovered am I dead or alive

Sometimes I breathe, sometimes it's not for days
And the miners I meet always go their separate ways
Sometimes you tell the family
That the mine is weak
And times when you're alone it's all you can do to breathe

I'm a miner, on a steel cart I ride
I'm recovered am I dead or alive
Recovered am I dead or alive

I'm a miner, on a steel cart I ride
I'm recovered am I dead or alive
Recovered am I dead or alive


I walk these mines, with a load of coal on my back
I pray all the time, because I might not make it back
I've worked everywhere, still I'm standing tall
I've seen dirty faces, and I've known them all

I'm a miner, on a steel cart I ride
I'm recovered am I dead or alive
I'm a miner, I've not got the night on my side
I'm recovered am I dead or alive
Recovered am I dead or alive

Speaking as a song title cop, I happen to know that TOS is called "Wanted Dead Or Alive"; speaking as myself, I think this is a fabulous parody, and I echo Carol's statements about the content and pacing.

sis-no one was downgrading this parody. 5's is the best and highest rating a parody writer can recieve. 1's and 2's are the worst.
