The Lyrics

Who can take a head
That's been blown in two
Remove the metal fragments
And sort through all the goo
The Coroner
The Coroner can
The Coroner can because he uses forensic evidence
so the dead can be understood

Who can take the body
Of someone who recently died
Poke and probe the corpse
And rule the death a suicide
The Coroner
The Coroner can
The Coroner can because he uses forensic evidence
so the dead can be understood

The Coroner gets to decide
If the death was a homicide
Sitting there at his work station
Did the victim die of strangulation
Or was it carbon dioxide asphyxiation

Who can take a tissue sample
Melt it down to a slime
Analyze what's left
And find a trace of strychnine
The Coroner
The Coroner can
The Coroner can because he uses forensic evidence
so the dead can be understood

And the bodies of the dead can be understood because
The Coroner thinks they should
