The Worms Crawl In...

Been doing a spot of research for Weird Cabaret...

I remembered a song that my father used to sing to me...he's a music teacher and has my sense of humour hehe...

The Worms Crawl In

Whenever you see a hearse go by,
Oooh, ah, oooh, ah
Remember, one day, you've got to die,
Oooh, ah, oooh, ah

They wrap you up in a clean white sheet,
Oooh, ah, oooh, ah
And drop your box down thirteen feet.
Oooh, ah, oooh, ah

All goes well for about a week ...
And then the coffin begins to leak ...

Your eyes fall in and your teeth fall out ...
And maggots play ping-pong on your snout ...

Your fingers rot, and so do your toes ...
Your brains come tumbling down your nose ...

After a while your face turns green ...
And pus pours out like clotted-cream ...

The worms crawl in and the worms crawl out ...
They go in thin and they come out stout ...

So, whenever you see a hearse go by,
Oooh, ah, oooh, ah
Remember one day, you've got to die,
Oooh, ah, oooh, ah
How happy we shall be!

There's a different version here, with a midi...:

Might be interesting to use it in performance, since the theme for the next Weird Cabaret is 'Death'...
