JIM'S BIG EGO: unpop for the unpopulous!

At the Funeral

from Titanic

At the funeral
all my friends are there
I'm in a brand new suit
and there are flowers everywhere
And everybody says
don't he look exactly like himself
whatever could have caused that sudden
lapse of mental health
but it was you babe
you drove me to the brink
hot water in the tub
straight razor in the sink
but now that's all cleaned up
and here we are
you and my folks
arriving in the same car

to my funeral
and all my friends are there
they've stitched up my wrists
they've slicked back my hair
and everybody says
don't he look exactly like himself
whatever could have caused that sudden
lapse of mental health
but it was you babe
and may I say - you've never looked better
just wait till you open
my suicide letter
and its addressed to you
all wrapped up neat
it's in that little green envelope
down there by my feet
go ahead
take a peek
yeah, I'm really proud of that
paragraph right there
I worked really hard on that
now you don't have to show this to anybody or anything
I already sent carbon copies to everyone here
should be waiting in their mailbox when they get home


from my funeral
and all my friends were there
they done me up proud
to show me they care
and now we're heading to the hearse
we're really having a ball
looks like you're going to need all those
tissues in your purse
after all
and everybody says
don't he look exactly like himself
whatever could have caused that sudden
lapse of mental health...
