Chorus: Oh Death, now oh Death in the morning
Oh Death, Death spare me over for another year

He cried Oh Death (hear him singing)
O Death in the morning
O Death (please now) spare me over another year

Yeah, Death walked up to the sinner door
Said Oh now sinner you got to go
The sinner looked around an began to cry
Said Oh no Death I'm not ready to die

Oh Death walked up to the sinner's gate
Said I believe you have waited now a little too late
Your fever now is one hundred and two
You have narrow chance that you'll ever pull through

He said I got feets and I can't walk
I got a tongue mother and I can't talk
I got eyes and I can't see
Nothin' but Death has got the shackles on me

Said now gonna fix your feet where you can't walk
Fix your tongue so you cannot talk
Close your eyes an' you cannot see
You got to come now an' go with me

Well Death, consider my age
And do not take me in this stage
All my wealth is at your command
If you just remove your cold icy hand

Oh what is this I see?
Cold icy hands all over me
Say I am Death no one can excell
I open the doors of Death and Hell
