The Worms Crawl In... [Sep. 14th, 2003|07:21 pm]

[Music |The Worms go in and the worms go out...]

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'...

Look at the Coffin

Look at the coffin, with golden handles...

Chorus:
Isn't it grand, boys, to be bloody well dead?
Let's not have a sniffle, let's have a bloody good cry
And always remember, the longer you live
The sooner you'll bloody well die.

Look at the widow, bloody great woman...

Chorus

Look at the mourners, bloody great hypocrites...

Chorus

Look at the preacher, bloody well sanctified...

(Will have to email that as well now!)
