alexthomasdavis – Carry That Body lyrics

If you don't carry that body
I tell you you'll be sorry
Stick it in the back of that lorry
And drive it to the quarry
Take a torch so you can see
How to do it properly
Get some spades out of the jeep
Dig a hole amongst the trees
Youve got to carry that body
Over here over there
Through the trees and everywhere
Over there and over here
Just be careful how you steer
Wrap it in this old rug
Have a drink glug glug glug
Keep your eyes out for those bugs
Don't forget to pull the plug
Youve got to carry that body
Over here over there
Through the city mind the glare
Over there over here
Now youve got a new career

    This song is self-explanatory and doesn't need that much annotation. ITs about gangster life and hopefully the actual sound of the song is pretty good. I use the chords I was using a lot at the time, C and G then up to Am and D. I've never had any lessons in song writing so have come to chord structures and patterns totally on my own. Whether they are well known or not God only knows.
