Oh, I have been smashed again
With the men from the
Old Valhalla Road Crematorium
Boring men with the same old patter

I am a simple man
Not much to gain or lose
And I don't know why I held out
So long for me and you

Until he drew a swallow on my neck
And more, I will not say
He drew a swallow deep and blue
And soon, everyone knew

Then I was wrecked again
With the men full of bluff and ardor
From a well known funeral parlor

I am a simple man
Not much to gain or lose
Older and wiser
Never applies to me

And so he drew a swallow on my neck
And more, I will not say
He drew a swallow, deep and blue
And soon, everyone knew

You have been telling me
That I have been acting childish
Foolish, ghoulish and childish

Oh, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know but I don't mind
I don't mind and I don't mind
I don't mind
