The Lyrics

If you
If you could just stop drooling
for just a second, grampaps
If you could
just hold yourself steady
& eat all of your spaghetti
without your dental plate falling out
Ya know, watching you eat makes me scream & shout
Do you have to make it linger?

You've got arthritis in your fingers
Your heart ain't gettin any bigger
You have a gross corpulent figure
Do you have to keep on living?
Your stock fortune you ain't giving
Do you have to keep on lingering
My bank account is dwindling
& if you'd just drop dead my wallet would be singing

Oh you
You know I'm such a fool
for your six figured accounts
The interest rises in such large amounts
I'm such a stuttering imbecile for your income
Plus you're a few weeks away from being 101
Do you have to live forever?

Especially with your descendants shivering in the cold
Living on tiny paychecks biweekly bankrolled
You don't care if we gotta pry the cash
from your stiff ancient hands
Cut off your finger to get that wedding band

I guess immortality's in your favor
It's our suffering that you savor
You shuffling spider veined coughing creature
Why can't you croak at your own leisure
Do you have to make life linger
Do we have to break your fingers
Do you have to make it linger
Just do us a favor and be a dead ringer
