lyrics

Please don't put me on an ice flow, when I'm senile and old
even with global warming the Arctic's still just too damn cold
just put me on a raft, with a box of beer and some food
and send me down the river towards the tropics warm and blue

If I'm ever kept alive by plastic tubes and a plug
please pull them after a few days sweep the controversy under the rug
I'm too damn loud and outspoken to be silenced in a hospital bed
just pour a round pull the curtains down, put the covers over my head

When I finally leave this world, please don't put me underground
burn my broken body and scatter the ashes all around
a handful in my favourite places, and the ones I never made it to
to all my friends and family, this is what I ask of you

And to you my dear Id leave my favourite stereo
please play our favourite records from the roof top as loud as it will go
make a mix tape of my top ten songs and gather our good friends
we'll share one last drink together and cheers until the end

When I finally leave this world, please don't put me underground
burn my broken body and scatter the ashes all around
a handful in my favourite places, and the ones I never made it to
to all my friends and family, this is what I ask of you
