folks you'd think I'd be happy and delighted
cause all my dreams are finally coming true
but did I mention all my dreams are nightmares
in my head I feel a storm about to brew

the clouds are hovering a mean blue and purple
no sunshine in my life anymore
the spirits are creepin' 'round every corner
I'm petrified but I'm unlockin' my door

so long cruel world
(so long cruel world)
dear mother goodbye
(dear mother goodbye)

these are the only words I say before I die
I want an old man priest
and a stormy day
but don't waste money on a casket

I don't deserve a grave
just cut out my organs
give 'em to the barely livin'
turn my body into ashes
and pray my soul's forgiven

so long cruel world
(so long cruel world)
oh me oh my
(oh me oh my)

time is come to pay for what I've done
so goodbye
goodbye

I hear the cracklin' of the thunder
and though my name's not on the list
I'll sport a sharkskin and a splash of aqua velva
I'll do a dance of death, give me that kiss

so long cruel world
(so long cruel world)
oh me oh my
(oh me oh my)

oh lo oh lo oh lo
(oh lo oh lo oh lo)
oh lee oh li
(goodbye goodbye)

so long cruel world
oh me oh my
the time is come to pay for what I've done
so goodbye
goodbye
