The Lyrics

When somebody has died, nobody likes to say the harsh words, "He's dead"
They prefer euphemisms that are kinder and gentler, instead.
The custom's old as life itself. .been done since time began
A common practice 'round the world, from Tennessee to Pakistan
I've grouped a bunch of special words that someday you might need
All you gotta' do is scroll down with your little mouse and read...


Slang words that mean die, man
Slang words that mean die, man
When we say good-bye, man
A list could reach the sky, man
Compile 'em and file, I'll try, man
Slang words that mean die,

These words are:

Bought one,
Kicked the bucket,
Bit the dust,
Cashed chips,
Shut down,
He croaked,
Done for,
Deleted,
Packed up,
Met the maker,
History,
Un-re-hearse'd,
Gone home
Max relax'd,
Planted,
Lost the battle,
Boot Hilled,
Idle-eyed,
Pushin' daisies,
Big snooze,
Room temp'd
Mega stilled,
Made the papers,

Grounded..

Slang words that mean die, man
Slang words that mean die, man
When we say good-bye, man
A list could reach the sky, man
Compile 'em and file, I'll try, man
Slang words that mean die,

And then theres...

Bought the farm,
Silk wormed,
Breathless,
In lay away,
Glory holed,
Let down,
Recalled,
Time's come,
Last legs,
Lock boxed,
Kaput,
Beat Met Life,
Dog boned,
Ash canned,
Passed on,
Terra firma'd,
Horizontal'd
Depth vacation,
Pale horsed,
Laid to rust,
Spirited,
Curly toed,
Demise Moor'd

Heired out..

Slang words that mean die, man
Slang words that mean die, man
When we say good-bye, man
A list could reach the sky, man
Compile 'em and file, I'll try, man
Slang words that mean die,

Also, there's:

Cold storaged
Relocated,
Stiff town'd,
Cancelled,
Board room'd,
A Yugo purchase,
White lighted,
Composted,
Rigor mortared,
Crypt tripped,
Prone zoned,
Better placed,
Flat filed,
Gone south,
Forever city'd
Discontinued,
Maggott lunch,
Mulch gulched,
Lord stored,
Left-overs,
Concluded,
Charlie Sheen'd
Moved to Cleveland,

R.I.Peed..

Slang words that mean die, man
Slang words that mean die, man
When we say good-bye, man
A list could reach the sky, man
Compile 'em and file, I'll try, man
Slang words that mean die,

And still there's:

Finalized,
Landfill,
Lily hilled,
Put down,
Ran out,
Unextended,
Used up,
Over with,
Downsodden,
Un-aged,
Totaled,
Underlying,
Peaced off,
Australia'd
Leech snack'd,
Dark parked,
A real downer,
Turf Smurfed,
Beyond-ed,
New Suited
Hole vaulted,
Soul terrained,
Bernie'd..

Whatever'd..

Slang words that mean die, man
Slang words that mean die, man
When we say good-bye, man
A list could reach the sky, man
Compile 'em and file, I'll try, man
Slang words that mean die,

Slang words that mean die..
