The Lyrics

they frisked it, unmasked it
they found that fellow's casket
i heard they're bettin' he's that mummy
some weird way they lost it
they lost it, they lost it
yes, some weird way they lost it
a building crew then dug it up
in twenty years, they grokked it

so, they tracked him on down, if that is true
throughout the christian throngs, they're blue
they been check check checkin' all around
since they pulled it from the ground
undid it, unlatched it
that fellow's casket
he didn't die and then come back
i guess that he just died

they ripped it. they smashed it
they tossed that fellow's casket
and when the world, at last, discerns it
i don't know what they'll do

was he jailed ?
no no no no
was he nailed ?
no no no no
was he killed ?
no no no no
just some simple fellow's casket
