Lyrics

They may bury my body when I die (when I die)
They may bury my body when I die (when I die)
Near some grave site I'd be found, simply rotting in the ground
If they bury my body when I die

They may burn my body when I die (when I die)
They may burn my body when I die (when I die)
When the fiery furnace flashes, I'll be nothing left but ashes
If they burn my body when I die

They may use my body when I die (when I die)
They may use my body when I die (when I die)
As the doctors ply their arts, I'll be in a hundred parts
If they use my body when I die

They may freeze my body when I die (when I die)
They may freeze my body when I die (when I die)
Though I may well be mis- taken I would hope to re-a waken
If they freeze my body when I die

They may eat my body when I die (when I die)
They may eat my body when I die (when I die)
If a zombie horde re- mains, they'll be hankering for ____
If they eat my body when I die

There's a chance: I'll never die at all ...
There's a chance: I'll never die at all ...
Cheating death is such a rarity, it would take a singu- larity
To per- mit, I never die at all

They may bury my body when I die (when I die)
They may bury my body when I die (when I die)
Near some grave site I'd be found, simply rotting in the ground
If they bury my body when I die
