i'll have a little home there

with a front yard all a-flame
a smoking red brick chimney
and a mailbox with my name
i've lost my teeth already
cause i lived like trailer trash
but they'll provide some dentures
so my choppers, i can gnash
right now the devil's forging
a sharp pitchfork meant for me
to perforate my tortured flesh
for all eternity
i should have read my bible
and i should have found the lord
the ship to heaven sailed away
and threw me overboard
a nice asbestos swim suit
is what i'm required to wear
when swimming in that brimstone lake
so popular down there
it's like july in december
also summer, spring and fall
when the devil has his birthday
it's the hottest day of all
it's too late to say "i'm sorry"
it's too late to make amends
but the one redeeming factor ?
i'll be there with all my friends
