MORTAL COIL

  I'm shuffling off this mortal coil

Very soon I'll be in my oils

Things have been creaking for some time

 It won't be long before the end of line

No, it won't be long before I'm done

The Pearly Gates have booked a table for one

I'm shuffling off this mortal coil

Very soon I'll be in my oils

Hey  Hey  Hey

It’s okay

Hey  Hey  Hey

Freddie in Bohemian Rhapsody

Said ”I don't wannna die" but brother, that ain’t me

Give me the sweet release of death

I just can't wait to draw the last of my breath

And I don't know why they call the reaper grim,

I've seen all the pictures and I'm down with him

Soon he'll come-a-knocking again

The key is under the pot and he can let himself in

Hey  Hey  Hey

It’s okay   

Hey  Hey  Hey

What a wonderful day for meeting my maker

We could pull up a chair and have a cup of Earl Grey

La La La la la

La la la la la 

La la la la la 

Hey Hey

I'm shuffling off this mortal coil

Any day now I’ll be in my oils

When I looked in the mirror today

I'd take salt and pepper, but it's just all grey

A welcome’s not to be overstayed

Like a bothersome in-law wanting one more day

I'm shuffling off this mortal coil

Any day now I’ll be in my oils

I'm shuffling off this mortal coil

Very soon I'll be in my oils

No, it won't be long before I'm done

The Pearly Gates have booked my table for one
