The Lyrics

I started out tryin' to make up some happy words for this GREAT melody, but sump'in' went wrong, REAL wrong.
UNDERTAKER, UNDERTAKER
(tune: WILL THE CIRCLE BE UNBROKEN)

I was standin’ by the winder when I heard my mama say,
LeRoy wear clean underwear dear, when you go to town today.

Now mama don’t chew worry, last I heard po’ Leroy say
These here skivvies I’m a wearin they’s bound to do me another day

CHORUS: Is there ring around your collar,
Is there grime on your waistband,
Will there be stains that we cain’t mention,
If today’s your day for Gloryland ?

We got a call from county POlice, Lee’s pickup hit a flock o’ geese
They’d found feathers, mangled metal, and the skivvies of the deceased

They was pitchers in the papers, there for all the world to see
Gut wrenchin’ stains I cain’t mention on the underwear of bubba Lee

Is there ring around your collar,
Is there grime on your waistband,
Will there be stains that we cain’t mention,
If today’s your day for Gloryland ?

Undertaker, Undertaker, take these REmains of our dear boy
It’s to be an open casket for the wake of po’ LeRoy

They was shrieks and moans despondent passin’ by and lookin’ down’
They was no end to the commotion til them skivvies was underground

Is there ring around your collar,
Is there grime on your waistband,
Will there be stains that we cain’t mention,
If today’s your day for Gloryland ?

Now for the honor of your famblies, heed your mothers and obey:
(“Please wear clean underwear dear, when you go to town today.”) 2




think about it, darlin…
