lyrics

I’m getting the feeling I’m ready to go
I called all my friends and I told them all so
My buddies they told me now don’t you be scared
You’ll come out in style if you go in prepared

I packed all my silver and paintings and clothes
In fact I’m still wearing the T-shirt I chose
Then I looked for awhile and I found a nice space
Then we all had a party and painted the place

Gonna do just fine in the afterlife

I feel a bit weaker don’t get around much
And the ladies I know say I’m losing my touch
I cooked myself dinner but I couldn’t eat
So I wrapped it to go with some onions and wheat

Then I went to the temple to talk to the gods
And I found I was favored with two to one odds
So I went by my tomb and I checked all the locks
Then I lay myself down to get fit for a box

Gonna do just fine in the afterlife

The shadows are closing now I’m gonna go
But I’m sure not afraid because I’m in the know
I’m off on a journey to I don’t know where
But I got all this stuff make me feel at home there

I’ll have a big party and make lots of friends
‘Cause you got to be nice when the time never ends
I’m sure that they’ll find out I’m someone to dig
If I hold up all right I could make it out big

Gonna do just fine in the afterlife
