The Lyrics

Rumors have stated that Paul McCartney was dead for years. He's still alive as of this writing.
You'd think that people would have had enough of silly rumors.
But I look around me and I see it isn't so.
Some people wanna fill the world with silly rumors.
And what's wrong with that?
I'd like to know, 'cause here I go again

I'm not dead
I'm not dead
I'm not dead
I'm not dead

I can't explain a millon times oh no, that I'm not dead
(I'm not dead)
Ah, they spread the word, they spread the word around, now I am mad,
(I'm not dead)
What's wrong with that?
I need to know, 'cause here I go again

I'm not dead
I'm not dead

Death sure may come in a minute,
Sometimes it may not come at all
I only know that I'm not deceased
The rumor's silly, it's really silly, silly rumors about Paul.

How can I tell you that I am not dead?
How can I tell you that I am not dead?

How can I tell you that I am not dead?
(I'm not dead)
How can I tell you that I am not dead?
(I'm not dead)

I'm not dead
I'm not dead
I'm not dead
(BGV#1 I can't explain a millon times oh no, that I'm not dead)
I'm not dead
(BGV#1 Ah, they spread the word, they spread the word around, now I am mad)
I'm not dead
(BGV#1 I can't explain a millon times oh no, that I'm not dead)
(BGV#2 How can I tell you that I am not dead?)
I'm not dead
(BGV#1 I can't explain a millon times oh no, that I'm not dead)
(BGV#2 How can I tell you that I am not dead?)
I'm not dead
(BGV#1 Ah, they spread the word, they spread the word around, now I am mad)
(BGV#2 How can I tell you that I am not dead?)
I'm not dead
(BGV#1 I can't explain a millon times oh no, that I'm not dead)
(BGV#2 How can I tell you that I am not dead?)

You'd think that people would have had enough of silly rumors.
But I look around me and I see it isn't so. Oh, no
Some people wanna fill the world with silly rumors.
And what's wrong with that?

Love the Pythonesque refrain.

I enjoyed as well, but I there is a large proportion of the original lyrics still there. I wish you had done a bit more to change more of it.
