Gravedigger
Cyrus Jones, 1810 to 1913
Made his great-grandchildren believe you could live to 103
103 is forever when you're just a little kid
So, Cyrus Jones lived forever

Gravedigger, when you dig my grave,
Could you make it shallow,
So that I can feel the rain?
Gravedigger...

Muriel Stonewall, 1903 to 1954
She lost both of her babies in the second great war.
Now, you should never have to watch
As your own children are lowered in the ground,
No, you should never have to bury your own babies

Gravedigger, when you dig my grave,
Could you make it shallow,
So that I can feel the rain?
Gravedigger...

Ring around the rosey
Pocket full of posey
Ashes to ashes
We all fall down

Gravedigger, when you dig my grave,
Could you make it shallow,
So that I can feel the rain?
Gravedigger...

Little Mikey Carson, '67 to '75
He rode his bike like the devil until the day he died
When he grows up he wants to be
Mr. Vertigo on the flying trapeze
Oh, 1940 to 1992

Gravedigger, when you dig my grave,
Could you make it shallow,
So that I can feel the rain?

Gravedigger, when you dig my grave,
Could you make it shallow,
So that I can feel the rain,
I can feel the rain, I can feel the rain?

Gravedigger, when you dig my grave,
Could you make it shallow,
So that I can feel the rain?
Gravedigger...

Gravedigger...
