The Lyrics

You may get my old recorder when I die
You may get my old recorder when I die
When the Heaven will be my home
I will play a golden trombone
You may get my old recorder when I die

You may get my old guitar when I die
You may get my old guitar when I die
I'll play harp solo faster
than that lousy Stratocaster
You may get my old guitar when I die

You may get my old compass when I die
You may get my old compass when I die
Though the Pearly Gate so far is
I'll be heading for Polaris
You may get my old compass when I die

You may get my old potty when I die
you may get my old potty when I die
When I'm in the home of Holies
I'll have no more metabolies
you may get my old potty when I die

You may get my calculator when I die
You may get my calculator when I die
' Cause beyond the Constellations
Einstein'll do my calculations
You may get my calculator when I die

You may get my old computer when I die
you may get my old computer when I die
If there's knowledge I'd be needing
I'll go Book of Life a-reading
you may get my old computer when I die

You may get my old cell phone when I die
you may get my old cell phone when I die
If I need to call Saint Kathy
I'll be using telepathy
you may get my old cell phone when I die

You may get my deck of cards when I die
you may get my deck of cards when I die
When I have become a croaker
I am finished with the poker
you may get my deck of cards when I die

You may get my old bokken when I die
you may get my old bokken when I die
I'll ask Our Lord if I may go
with Saint Michael for ji-geiko
you may get my old bokken when I die

You may get my old flashlight when I die
you may get my old flashlight when I die
There's no darkness in the Heaven
Lambs shines like Sun, just times seven
you may get my old flashlight when I die

You may get my distillator when I die
you may get my distillator when I die
In the Heaven there's no fighting
we will all just drink White Lightning
you may get my distillator when I die

You may get my old bicycle when I die
you may get my old bicycle when I die
For the last kilometer
I'll drive tandem with Saint Peter
you may get my old bicycle when I die

Let's hear it for Susie's Good Will and Testament! I'll be glad to take your bokken, potty, guitar, and computer. You can take my 555 millions when I die!

Title switch extraordinary, and supraordinary content. Great couplets: Stratocaster, Polaris, and the wonderful manglings of "meta-bol-ies" and "tele-path-y for poetic license and rhyme.

TT hopes it's very long that she survives
And her parody at AmIRight, too, thrives
When that holy Heaven's haven
Gets Susanna Vil-a-janen
She can take with her this triple set of Fives
BR> (sorry, had to do a bit of mangling myself to get your name to fit)

Christie and TT, thank you for your comments

This song is very popular in Finland as this "last will" form - I know some 36 verses of what one's survivors will get when the protagonist has dearly departed, and why. I am thinking of making Part Two - I have some more insane ideas :)

You may get my male enhancements when I die You may get my male enhancements when I die Be it pumps or pills or porno Up in Heaven that's a no-no You may get my male enhancements when I die

as I read this song I'm thinking how to vote as I hold on to the pacing, sing the notes it's a little off in places, and could use some resting spaces less than perfect, but it makes a malc emote

I'm overlooking the pacing on some of the items that you leave behind in the parody because I think this is cleverly written and it makes so much sense. I like the flow and the rhyming schemes. This really explains why we take nothing with us when we depart the planet. I'm glad that I lived in Japan for three years of my life because I would have had no idea what "booken" and "jigeiko" meant. This brought back some fond memories of life in Japan. Domo arrigato gosai masu! Great write Susanna.
