The Lyrics

Rollin', rollin', rollin'.
Rollin', rollin', rollin'.
Rollin', rollin', rollin'.
Rollin', rollin', rollin'.
Pre-paid!
Ha! Ha!

Be rollin', rollin'. rollin',
Hearseback.. I'll be rollin',
Kin won't need consolin',
Pre-paid!

Went down to my mortician,
Got a pre-condition,
Mission, accomplished..for last ride
Chose a purple coffin'
Nice box,..picked out a soft one,
I hopped in..for a re-hearse-al slide..

Lotta' space, pillow's soft,
Like an old..barn hayloft
Tissue box, if I cough,
Pre-paid!

Cancels tab..for in-laws,
Limits blab..of their jaws,
When I take..that big pause,
Pre-paid!
Ha! Ha!

In my coffin, newbie
DVD ..so groovy..
I can watch a movie..
Prepaid!

At my wake, better go there,
I'm gonna' have a ho there
Pole..and a stripper by my side
Nervous at the mention,
Anxiety and tension,
Just can't wait to be mum..mified..

No "Autops"...must be whole,
Farewell cake...balloon toe,
Prop me up...suntan glow
Pre-paid!

After rites...on the plains
Head for "Bills...Happy Lanes"
Beer and wine...and champagnes,
Pre-paid!

(Bowlin', bowlin', bowlin',)
(Strikes and spares...and strollin' )
Ha!
(Bowlin', bowlin', bowlin',)
Ha!
(No sad churchbells tollin')
Prepaid!
Ha!
Pre-paid!

AFW - Nicely done. Pre-payment is like shellac...it protects the "finish". ;D

Very funny and exceptionally clever with wide, nay, 'mass' appeal! Loved it, AFW!

Excellent & hilarious - my fave of the day. LOL @ in-laws (don't we all)

Q.) What's the difference between in-laws and outlaws.
A.) Outlaws are wanted.

The song mentioned last week was Dave Dudley. I've got a 1969 blues-rock version by Taj Mahal, but I've done the Dudley one because he sings it clearer. I've borrowed a few yeehaw CD's from my dad that I'm going to have a go through for ideas. They've got all the usual hits (Patsy/Dolly/Tammy, Hamilton IV, Don Gibson, Tex Ritter, Marty Robins, Jim Reeves, Conway Twitty, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Lynn Anderson etc), but they also has a lot that I've never heard of. Some of them could be interesting to have a go at (George Jones, Webb Pierce, Del Reeves, Billy Walker, Stonewall Jackson, Statler Brothers, The Browns, Porter Wagoner, Skeeter Davis, Hank Locklin, Faron Young, Kitty Walker, Ray Price, Ernest Tubb, Hank Snow, Loretta Lynn, Bobby Bare, Cowboy Copas, Ferlin Husky etc). Are all these others well known in the US? I'm asking you because I've got the impression, from some of your previous comments that I've seen, that this is your fave style of music. I don't mind doing a few obscure ones, but I don't want to do lots that no one will have heard of.

Thanks, OMR...good line....and thanks TJC, good pun.......and thanks, Andy...Yes, Dave Dudley was one of my top favorite country singers. Back in the sixies and seventies, I bought almost all the albums he released. Although he was known, primarily, for "Six Days", and for singing truck driving songs; in my opinion, he was greatly underrated..he was a fantastic country ballad singer, Too bad he passed away about 8 years ago without getting much deserved recognition. All the country stars you list are the country greats, and many of them, now, deceased. I'm glad you're going to parody some of their songs..I've done quite a few over the years. And about it being my favorite music, you're right..It, and the old pop standards from the big band era and some fifties R&R, and fifties ballads, Broadway musical songs, and anything by Sinatra...And thank you, John

Very funny, AFW. Of course, you've heard about the new chapstick for corpses? It's called M-Balm, guaranteed for the lifetime of the corpse. (cue rimshot...!)
All 5's.
