“Dead Man’s Party” by Oingo Boingo(originally The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo)
From Boingo at the Ritz, 1985:
CHORUSI was struck by lightingWalkin’ down the streetI was hit by something last night in my sleepIt’s a dead man’s partyWho could ask for moreEverybody’s comin’, leave your body at the doorLeave your body and soul at the door . . .(Don’t run away it’s only me)All dressed up with nowhere to goWalkin’ with a dead manWaitin’ for an invitation to arriveWith a dead man . . . Dead Man . . .Got my best suit and my tieShiny silver dollar on either eyeI hear the chauffeur comin’ to the doorSays there’s room for maybe just one more . . .
Courage. And try to smile, even though you might be dead. 🙂
