LyricsEdit

[BONEJANGLES]

Hey! Give me a listen you corpses of cheer,


Leastles of you who still got an ear,


I'll tell you a story make a skeleton cry,


Of our own jubiliciously lovely corpse bride.


[BONE BOYS]

Die, die we all passed away


But don't wear a frown cause it's really okay


And you might try and hide


And you might try and pray


But we all end up the remains of the day


Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah


Yeah yeah yeah

[BONEJANGLES]

Well our girl is a beauty known for miles around


When a mysterious stranger came into town


He's plenty good lookin', but down on his cash


And our poor little baby, she fell hard and fast


When her daddy said no, she just couldn't cope


So our lovers came up with a plan to elope

[BONE BOYS]

Die, die we all pass away


But don't wear a frown cuz it's really okay


And you might try and hide


And you might try and pray


But we all end up the remains of the day


Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah


Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah


Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah


Yeah yeah yeah

(Instrumental)

[BONEJANGLES]

So they conjured up a plan to meet late at night.


They told not a soul, kept the whole thing tight,


Now her mother's wedding dress fit like a glove,


You don't need much when you're really in love,


Except for a few things, or so I'm told,


Like the family jewls and a sachel of gold,


Then next to the grave yard by the old oak tree,


On a dark foggy night at a quarter to three,


She was ready to go, but where was he?


[KITCHEN STAFF MALE]

And then?

[BONEJANGLES]

She waited...

[BOTH KITCHEN STAFF]

And then?

[BONEJANGLES]

There in the shadows, was it the man?

[KITCHEN TRIO]

And then?

[BONEJANGLES]

Her little heart beat so loud....

[KITCHEN STAFF WITH PAUL]

And then?

[BONEJANGLES]

And then baby, everything went black


Now when she opened her eyes she was dead as dust.


Her jewls were missing and her heart was bust.


So she made a vow lying under that tree,


That she'd wait for her true love to come set her free.


Always waiting for someone to ask for her hand,


When out of the blue comes this groovy young man.


Who vows forever to be by her side,


And that's the story of our own corpse bride...
