Blackcat2 halloween songs (248* d) Lyr Add: BLOODY WELL DEAD^^^ 28 Oct 99

Joyous Samhain yall

the aformentioned song "Look At the Coffin"

is on a Clancy Brothers album entitled "Bloody Well Dead"

I tend to do it with a added verse that speaks to the possiblility that the song is from the dead man (or men) in the coffins who are impatient to be at a party that goes on interminally without the chance of a drink.

Look at the coffin with golden handles
Isn't it grand boys to be bloody well dead.

Let's not have a sniffle, let's all have a bloody good cry,
And always remember the longer you live, the sooner you'll bloody well die.

Look at the flowers, all bloody withered

Look at the mourners, bloody great hypocrites,
Look at the preacher, bloody sanctimonius,
Look at the widow bloody great female,

Look at our corpses - all bloody rotting
