lyrics

there was a mourning waltz
it was a happy dirge
we hired a new orleans band
cuz you were under the earth

it was a happy time
you were wasting away
we were testing our bonds
and on your final day

we came to bury you
we came to put you under
we came to bury you
we came to drink you under

but as we danced … upon your grave
the earth heaved up … we were not brave …
you came back

THEN WE CALLED BUFFY SUMMERS

there was a ninja waltz
it was a fight to the death
there was a chorus line
you had really bad-bad breath

there was a moment or two
when you thought you’d win
when her strength gave out
AND THEN ANGEL STEPPED IN

we came to bury you
we came to put you under
we came to bury you
we came to drink you under

we came with our stakes
we came with our knives
we came with our crossbows
we came in the middle of the night
