Don’t You Laugh When the Hearse Goes By

Don’t you laugh when the hearse goes by
‘Cause you might be the next to die

They’ll wrap you up in a clean white sheet
And put you down about six feet deep

They put you into a wooden box,
And cover you over with earth and rocks.

It’s not so bad for the first few weeks
Until your coffin begins to leak.

The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out
The worms play pinochle on your snout

They eat your eyes, they eat your nose
They eat the jelly between your toes

They eat your clothes, they eat your hat
They crawl in skinny, and crawl out fat

Your teeth fall in and your eyes pop out,
Your brains come trickling down your snout.

Then you turn disgustingly green
Your skin as slimy as whipping cream.

So next time you see the hearse go by
Watch out!
You may be the next (pause)
To (pause)

My mother taught my sisterand I this poem when we were young. She would always get at us for saying it when we passed a graveyard. I would always tell her if you didn’t want me to repeat it then you probably shouldn’t have taught it to me.
