This is an announcement
For those dead or weak at heart
Let’s list those who we’ve lost
And grandpa’s at the start;
He’s partying underneath the ground
That wiley old fart.
He’s got grandma’s skirt above his head
(and we don’t know whose she’s wearing now)
you thought they were rotting, all the dead?
You’d thought they’d given their final bow?
Well, Uncle Henry’s far from gone;
His card tricks are as sly as ever.
And Aunt Anita looks a fawn,
but her mind remains so clever.
Cousin Joanie was such a witch
Our pet frogs never liked her.
But now she’s been much less a twitch
Takes but a word for her to purr.
She dances round with Nephew Jimmy
who drinks like an Irish fool
And on the left is his twin Timmy
Clapping in time on his favorite bar stool.
You never would’ve thought
They’d all be so much fun.
Guess you should’ve found out
While they were still beneath the sun.
I can see you wondering about
Many others you lost before
But I’ll point you the way
of David from next door.
He’s no longer shy
But loud and boisterous
Oh what a guy;
He’ll tell a joke for most of us.
See now you know,
That when we go;
We’re not just rotting down;
We sing and dance,
A second chance,
There’s fondness all around!
