Harvey Bodine
Died at 11:09
And he left behind
A miserable wife.
And at 11:14
His heart came back on the screen.
Thanks to that defib machine,
He came back to life.

Oh but those five minutes were heaven.
A peace unlike he'd ever known.
And as he came back to the living
He thought "Please God, don't make me go
Back to life."

They told him what happened.
How that green line had flattened.
Oh, Harvey just started laughing.
He said, "You're telling me I died."
(You're telling me I died?)

Aw, and he thought about that woman.
How she treated him for years.
All the yellin' and the screamin'
And the nagging and the tears
And the way it wasn't really all that bad
When he lost his life.

Because those five minutes were heaven.
A peace unlike he'd ever known.
And now he was back with the living
And he found himself reaching for the phone.

He called his lawyer, he called his priest
Told 'em bout how they'd restarted his heart
And how his wedding vows were technically
'Til death do us part.

You'll probably judge me and so be it.
But you know boys, here's how I see it

Harvey Bodine
Died at 11:09
And he left behind
A miserable wife.
Oh, but at 11:14
My heart came back on that screen.
Thanks to that defib machine,
I've come back to life
