"Over You" as written by Allen Toussaint and Allen Julian Orange....
There'll be some slow walkin'
Gonna be some sad talkin'
There'll be some flowers bringin'
Gonna be some sad singin' over you
I said over you
Over you, pretty baby if I ever hear you say we're through

There'll be some long black limousines
People peepin' from their window screens
Parade of cars with their headlights on
All of that will be goin' on over you
I said over you
Over you, pretty baby if I ever hear you say we're through

There'll be a hole about six feet deep
For you baby to take your sleep
Into a pine box and down you'll go
Where you will stay where it's free of snow over you
I said over you
Over you, pretty baby if I ever hear you say we're through

All your folks will be dressed in black
Ride a long black Cadillac
Yeah, baby they'll be puttin' you away
The funeral home'll have good business that day over you
I said over you
Over you, pretty baby if I ever hear you say we're through

Said I want to slay you baby, whoa now
Over you, pretty baby if I ever hear you say we're through

Say you'll never leave me
I said you'll never leave me
Said I'm gonna get rid of you, baby if I ever hear you say we're through

Whoa, I love you
No tellin' what I'd do
That's why baby I want to do all these things to you
