She ran outside
She left the party early
Ripping her dress
She got her stockings dirty

Standing in the rain
She swore she'd never hurt again
Although her thinking was slightly
Influenced by the night that she'd abandoned
Dinner for 5, she'd left the hostess stranded

She caused quite a scene
Throwing her napkin down and rising
The guests pretended
That they hadn't seen her aflame

The wine glasses were filled
And she started burning at the table
Informing her of the fable
That this is her living funeral tonight
This is her living funeral tonight

So the legend goes
Dinner deteriorated
When she did not return
The guests and their mourning faded

Running through the rain
She swore she'd never see them again
Although her thinking was slightly deranged
This is her living funeral
This is her living funeral tonight

Attendance could be better
She could have worn a different sweater
This is her living funeral tonight
