The Lyrics

( a horse of course ... )
The curse of the hearse is worst at first.
It helps to believe you’ll disperse that curse,
or else immerse the universe
with the thought that YOU’re not DEAD.

If you find a nurse has just conversed
with loved ones convinced that your veins have burst,
you’ve got a chance you might reverse
the thought YOU MIGHT BE DEAD.

People yakkity yak a streak
and waste your life away.
But, if you’re dead, you’ll never speak
unless you have something to say.

The curse of the hearse is worst at first,
especially when waking up in that hearse.
You never thought maybe you’d traverse?
Well, get used to this:
You Just Might Be Dead   Copyright 2009
Parody of Mr. Ed television show theme song as sung by Jay Livingston,
original words & music written by Ray Evans and Jay Livingston ©1961.
