Original Performer:

Tammy Wynette

Parody Song Title:

"I Am Not Dead!"

Parody Written by:

Christy McDaniel

The Lyrics

This is inspired by a skit on SNL about Natalie Cole doing duets with dead people, and during that a fake Tammy Wynette came on and said, "I AM NOT DEAD!" and a fake Natalie Cole repeats and sings after her. You will love this parody!!!

Sometimes it's hard to tell the truth
'Cause no one may understand
You try to really speak
But you feel so weak
and you scream out for demand
But if you want to say something
As you are resting on your bed
And if you try hard
you will not eat so much lard
Just try to say you are not dead.

You say as you throw your basket
But they'll put you in a casket
That they will not believe you
I just need medication
I'm just sleeping on my own bed

(instrumental break)

And if you try hard
you will not eat so much lard
Just try to say you are not dead.

(repeat chorus)
I hope you found this funny!
