Daily Reckless


Dead Funny

Sometimes I can be really morbid
I thought about the death of Ronnie Corbett
And would they put him in a child-size coffin
You see?

And just when I thought I couldn't be any darker
I though about the death of Ronnie Barker
I bet they'll have floral tributes shaped like giant specs
You see, other people - they think about gardening and sex

So what the hell is wrong with me?
I think and dream in comedy
And when I die it will not be taken very seriously
Oh, they'll say, He's dead
Funny, he looked alright last week to me
That's cos I was alive you see

Situationists agree that it is a farce to be
Alive in this great tapestry
We call life and we think is free

But it's not quite so easy
To rhyme every line you see
A, B, C, D, E, F, G
Well, I guess it IS easy

Dead funny
