Sally's into knowledge
Spent her years in college
Just to find out nothing is true

She can hardly speak now
Words are not unique now
'Cause they can't say anything new

You say humanist philosophy
Is what it's all about?
You're so open-minded
That your brain leaked out

Whatcha gonna do when your number's up?
Time to lay diplomas down
Whatcha gonna do when your number's up?
And you're buried six feet underground

Spent your life looking out for number one
Pride'll come before a fall
Whatcha gonna do when your number's up?
Were you thinking that was the end of it all?

Harry's a civilian, wants to make a million
So he keeps on pluggin' away
Money is eternal like the Wall Street Journal
Yes, they're gonna make him happy someday

Grabbin' for the gusto
Gonna hit pay dirt or bust
Where's it gonna get you
When you bite the dust?

Whatcha gonna do when your number's up?
Time to lay your money down
Whatcha gonna do when your number's up?
And you're buried six feet underground

Spent your life looking out for number one
Pride'll come before a fall
Whatcha gonna do when your number's up?
Were you thinking that was the end of it all?

Buried in your psyche
Is the shadow of a doubt
You're so open minded
That your brains leaked out

Oh, whatcha gonna do when your number's up?
Time to lay your money down
Whatcha gonna do when your number's up?
And you're buried six feet underground

Spent your life looking out for number one
Pride'll come before a fall
Whatcha gonna do when your number's up?
Were you thinking that was the end of it all?

Oh, your number's up
Up, up, up, up
