Remains of the Day BONEJANGLES

Hey! Give me a listen, you corpses of cheer



'Least those of you who still got an ear

I'll tell you a story make a skeleton cry

Of our own jubiliciously lovely corpse bride

BONE BOYS

Die, die we all pass away

We don't wear a frown 'cause it's really okay

You might try 'n' hide

And you might try 'n' pray

But we all end up the remains of the day

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeahhh

BONEJANGLES

Well our girl was a beauty known for miles around

'Till a mysterious stranger came into town

He was plenty good lookin', but down on his cash

And our poor little baby, she fell hard and fast

When her daddy said no, she just couldn't cope

So our lovers came up with a plan to elope

BONE BOYS

Die, die we all pass away

We don't wear a frown 'cause it's really okay

You might try 'n' hide

And you might try 'n' pray

But we all end up the remains of the day

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeahhh

BONEJANGLES

So they conjured up a plan to meet late at night

They told not a soul, kept the whole thing tight

Now her mother's wedding dress fit like a glove

You don't need much when you're really in love

Except for a few things, or so I'm told

Like the family jewels and a satchel of gold

Then next to the grave yard by the old oak tree

On a dark foggy night at a quarter to three

She was ready to go, but where was he...?

BONE BOYS

And then?

BONEJANGLES

She waited

BONE BOYS

And then?

BONEJANGLES

There in the shadows, was it the man?

BONE BOYS

And then?

BONEJANGLES

Her little heart beat so loud

BONEBOYS

And then?

BONEJANGLES

And then baby, everything went black

Now when she opened her eyes she was dead as dust

Her jewels were missin' and her heart was bust

So she made a vow lyin' under that tree

That she'd wait for her true love to come set her free

Always waiting for someone to ask for her hand

When out of the blue comes this groovy young man

Who vows forever to be by her side

And that's the story of our corpse bride
