Lyrics

i want to die, i want to die
i want to die without a wife
or at least without one that didn’t love me
so i can be free of all the mourning,
the bitterness and the black, all the tears & kak

i want to die wearing these same shoes
& my favourite t-shirt too
i don’t wanna kill myself
i’d rather let someone else
20 000 people can’t be wrong

i want to die on a tuesday afternoon
on a busy sidewalk or maybe
a pretty park in town, so the bergies
or tannies, skollies or the cops,
can stop by and stare for a while
until the blood runs dry

i want to die towards the end of the year
in december, or in november
so i won’t lose that much on my subscriptions
to die burger and insig and DSTV
and any case then by christmas
all can be forgotten so the new year
could be happy again

i want to die on a tuesday afternoon
just after i’ve returned all my overdue
videos and library books – paying all my
fines happily while ignoring those
traffic department summonses
knowing that video stores and libraries are
good for man, and traffic cops are not

yes and i want to die on a cool
& cloudy day, so my body won’t
swell up and rot and stink that much
and maybe at about half past three
so the coroners and the crime reporters
can make all their deadlines
and be home at eight for dinner
with their wives and families

yes i want to die without too much hassle alright
you can cremate me or make me into compost
or king pies or that stuff you put in potholes
or whatever but i want to die yes i want to die
late in the year at about half past three in a cool spot in a quiet park

yes i want to die yes i want to die
i want to die i want to die i want to die i want to die
on a tuesday afternoon
please
