To my dear,dear mother
I leave myonly shoes
To my dear, dear mother
I leave my only shoes
By the time you read this
I will have died of the blues
Scream little choo-choo
Bang your xylophone track
You can wail all night long
But you can't bring her back
I've done so much crying
The flesh has left my bones
I've done so much crying
The flesh has left my bones
I can play my ribcage
Like a xylophone
