Be Merry My Friends Be Merry

Be Merry My Friends Be Merry



Lyrics by Mat Greaves

Did you ever think as the hearse goes by,
That you would be the next to die,
They wrap you up in a big white sheet,
From your head down to your feet.
They put you in a big black box,
And cover you up with dirt and rocks,
All goes well for about a week,
Then your coffin begins to leak!

The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
The worms play pinochle on your snout,
Them eat your eyes, them eat your nose,
Them eat the jelly betwixt your toes.

A big green worm with rolling eyes
Drinks a toast to your demise
Your stomach turns a slimy green,
And pus pours out like whipping cream.
You’ll spread it on a slice of bread,
That’s what you’ll eat when you’re dead.
Guts and innards turn to slime,
The worms all sing it’s crawling time!

The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
The worms play pinochle on your snout,
Them eat your eyes, them eat your nose,
Them eat the jelly betwixt your toes.

Be merry my friends
Be merry my friends
Be merry my friends
Be merry my friends, be merry!

Your eyes fall in,
Your hair falls out,
Your brains all tum to sauerkraut,
Guts and innards liquefy,
This is what it is to die!

The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
The worms play pinochle on your snout,
Them eat your eyes, them eat your nose,
Them eat the jelly betwixt your toes.

The Gypsy sings a haunting song
And hopes that you might sing along
Wine of ages fills your cup
Here we come to dig you up!

The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
The worms play pinochle on your snout,
Them eat your eyes, them eat your nose,
Them eat the jelly betwixt your toes. (X3)

Be merry my friends
Be merry my friends
Be merry my friends
Be merry my friends, be merry!
