Might be a photograph in my obituary

Wherein it's really a predeath song, but audience participation in the pews should be encouraged


For background, see here and here

Loudon Wainwright III, from the Unrequited album. You may also remember this from an episode of M*A*S*H.

Unrequited to the Nth Degree
Oh when I die and it won't be long
Oh you're gonna be sorry that you treated me wrong
You're gonna be sorry that you treated me bad
And if there's an after life I'll gloat and I'll be glad

Might be a plane crash, or some sort of OD
Might be a photograph in my obituary
You might see it and you'll cry a lot
Might want to wear black
Oh, I'd be dead but you can bet your life, I'm gonna get you back

I'm tired of being stuck up on your shelf
Might not wait around, Might kill myself
Not only would you miss me, you'd feel guilty to
Oh I'd be dead but it'd be too late the joke would be on you.

Ha ha ha ha, ho ho ho ho
Chuckle chuckle chuckle chuckle
Snigger snigger snigger snigger
Guffaw Guffaw Guffaw Guffaw Guffaw Guffaw
Yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk

So you better take a warning and start treating me good
Start doing the things that I think you should
You better not pout and you better not cry
The grim reaper is coming to town and I just might die
