i was late for my life, i'm gonna be late for death
you'll wait at my wake at the time of my untimely . . .
that's how i'm gonna do it

sure i'm a nobody now, will i be a somebody then?
will they say nice things, or just divvy my shit and split?
how they gonna do it?
when i'm dead, how they gonna do it?

oh how they gonna do it!

& i'm irresponsible as humanly possible, oh yes
i'll give'em my debts before they lay me to rest
that's how i wanna do it

& there's some things you could love about me,
things you could hate
it all gets weighed at the end of my days
what will they be saying?
when i'm decaying, what will they be saying?
oh what will they say!

leave my unkempt cords by the backstage door
let 'em wonder where i've been,
i'm gonna do it

& will they cry or at least give it a try?
will they mourn, or will it have passed by morning?
how they gonna do it?
when i'm dead, how they gonna do it?

oh how they gonna do it!
