When a Hearse Goes By Song
This Song is meant for Boy Scouts.
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger scouts or not.
Don't you laugh when the hearse goes by
'Cause you might be the next to die
They'll wrap you up in a clean white sheet
And put you down about six feet deep
They put you into a wooden box,
And cover you over with earth and rocks.
It's not so bad for the first few weeks
Until your coffin begins to leak.
The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out
The worms play pinochle on your snout
They eat your eyes, they eat your nose
They eat the jelly between your toes
They eat your clothes, they eat your hat
They crawl in skinny, and crawl out fat
Your teeth fall in and your eyes pop out,
Your brains come trickling down your snout.
Then you turn disgustingly green
Your skin as slimy as whipping cream.
So next time you see the hearse go by
You may be the next (pause)
