lyrics

WHEN I DIE

With magic in my pocket
I’ve lived life like a rocket
I know my time is probably coming soon

Lately I’ve been thinking
That if I die from all this drinking
I’d like to leave the world a gift or two

When I die
you can wring my liver into a cup
tip it back and drink it up
Repeat until you can’t stand up
That’s a Gift From Me

When I die
Take my lungs and squeeze ‘em
Into a kid who idn’t breathing
Tell him he can keep them
That’s a Gift From Me

When I die
wind my veins into a long long rope
wrap it around the presidents throat
shove him hard so he swings low
That’s a Gift From Me

And I’ve been saving
Like coins in a can
Some gifts and some secrets
That you all can have
When I Die

When I die
take my brain and plug it in
Set up the screen, invite my friends
Watch the show we’re starrin’ in
That’s a Gift From Me

When I die
Give my eyes to a blind old dog
See that he sees what I saw
The sun, the moon, I guess that’s all
That’s a Gift From Me

I’ve been out canoein’
Wondering what I’m doin’
Hoping I could leave this world some good
I came in off the water
Went to see my doctor
He said “If you haven’t made a will
You probably should”

And I’ve been saving
Like coins in a can
Some gifts and some secrets
That you all can have
When I Die

xxxSo when I die
xxxGive my mouth to sweet suzette
xxxRinse it clean from cigarettes
xxxAsk her to kiss it, she won’t I bet
xxxBut That’s a Gift From Me

When I Die
Fill my heart with helium
Fly it over the stadium
Take aim and shoot it with a gun
Let everyone catch a piece
Yeah that’s a gift from me
