The Lyrics

For these remaining hours
Or days, or years I've got
Before they bou-quet flowers
Grab stuff and pick a spot
My plan is not to change
Or get religion..
Just sip sweet wine of life
Until the nectar sours...

I'll not be buried at my mourning..
I'm posting notice strong and stern
Ignite the hopper!
Flame up a whopper!
The devil won't have me to burn!

Dressed in a suit that I was born in
Untouched and lookin' like Bruce Dern
Open the oven
And do the shovin'
Old satan can't have me to burn!

Slide in my pine box,
Basic, no more..
If flames are cracklin'
Quickly, slam the door!

No, I won't be buried on that morning
Toss in my magazines of porn
No need to shave me
The Lord couldn't save me,
But the devil won't get me..
The devil don't get me,
I'll be safe - in my nice gray mantel urn

The relatives will all be scorning
Low life insurance, they will learn
Bucket, or pail me
But please don't fail me
Ol' devil shan't have me to burn!

Don't give my creditors a warning
Make my demise of no concern
Don't show or wake me
Just shake n' bake me
That devil don't need me to burn!

Inform my dream mate
Close friends in town!
I want a cremate!
Please don't plant me down!

Verdict is out, jury's adjourning
Guilty as sin - when it's my turn
Please don't embalm me!
Barbecue all me!
So, the devil won't have me..
The devil won't get me..
For peat's sake!
Don't give ol' satan me to burn!

For final moments, I'm content now
Left clear instructions, when I die
No one's to lay these
Ashes in hades!
All set, I am
For last goodbye!

I'll not be buried on that morning
Think what they'll save on just green fern..
No fav'rite hymn known
Fire, without brimstone!
That devil can't have me..
Devil don't get me..
My clambake!
The devil can't have!

Good fun, this one. Fave: 'for peat's sake'. But think of all those worms and maggots you're denying a decent meal! Of course your soul is still going to hell for eternal torture, you old reprobate. Think you could get out of it that easily? You shoulda switched to cyber porn. Satan's still in the dark ages, so no evidence. 555 degrees.
