lyrics

In life
You hear a lot of complaining
In this world
people are kind of cruel
Nothing is free; there's too much bad TV
Everyone's critical
In work, at home, in school
I don't have a clean solution but this might clear your head:
All of your woes - conflicts with all of your foes -
That'll be over when you're dead
Oh, when you're dead

And when you're dead
You won't have to pay the mortgage
Dead, all your chores are done
(your race is run)

In life
You never have the right umbrella
In this world
Nothing goes as planned
You're out in the rain
Words can not contain
A world that's full of pain and hits you where you stand
I don't have a clean solution
But you can take this instead
All that's wrong
It'll all be gone
This'll be over when you're dead (Oh, when you're dead)

And when you're dead
You won't have to do the laundry
You won't need a date (you know you're late)

In life
Everything's a disappointment
In this world
Things just take too long
From young and weak to old and meek
Always peeking into
Places you don't belong
I guess I'll never understand it
But it's the life I led
Dazed and confused, asked and refused
It'll be over when you're dead
Yeah when you're pushing daisies
Nothing can harm you when you're dead
Oh, when you're dead!
