I'm gonna buy you a straight life policy, sick and accident, too
Some accident's gonna happen baby and gonna happen to you
Says, I'm gonna ride to your funeral, mama, in a V8 Ford
Say, you think you wise, baby, but you just don't know

Gonna hire six white horses, carry you to your grave
I'm gonna be there, baby, throw dirt in your face
Then I'm gonna ride to your funeral, baby, in a V8 Ford
Say, you think you wise, baby, but you just don't know

I'm gonna hire me a chauffeur, cook and a maid, too
Gonna put you enough insurance to buy me a house and lot, too
Says, I'm gonna ride to your funeral, baby, in a V8 Ford
Now say, you think you're wise, baby, but you just don't know

Says, I would buy a Buick, it's good on the road
But it's nothin' like ridin' in a V8 Ford
Says, I'm gonna ride to your funeral, baby, in a V8 Ford
Say, you think you're wise, baby, but you just don't know

I'm gonna bump you off, gonna tell you the reason why
You're worth more to me dead, woman, than you is alive
Says, I'm gonna ride to your funeral, baby, in a V8 Ford
Say, you think you wise, baby, but you just don't know
