What a way to go
What a way to go
What a way to go
What a way to go

Twenty five years working for the state
Saved all your money, got a good rate
Always thinking 'bout that pension plan
The day of retirement, the promised land, well

Got a finish off that swimming pool
Get some umbrellas, don't wanna be cool
Remember to take them fishing trips
You never had time for, this is it

The day of retirement have finally come
Get a gold watch and your work is done
One month later your heart give out
What was all that planning about?

What a way to go
What a way to go
What a way to go
What a way to go

Well, they finally lay you in the ground
Your wife and the children standing around
Now they got that pension plan
Rather have you, don't you know it, man

What a way to go
What a way to go
What a way to go
What a way to go

What a way to go
What a way to go
What a way to go
What a way to go
