lyrics

We’d be better off not to know, we’d be better off, not to know…

She worked the late shift draining bodies
On the wrong side of the town
Trying to disguise
The way it felt inside
When she washed those bodies down
Boys who died in gangland battles
And in high speed felony flight
Formaldehyde would flow
Then the boss would go
And though she knew it wasn't right

She did the mortuary bop
She loved to be on top
Of the bluing flesh of boys who passed away

She worked the late shift burning bodies
On the wrong side of the track
Trying to disguise
The way it felt inside
When she laid them on that rack
Boys who died from overdoses
No family, friends or home
Then the flame would burn
She would fill the urn
But when she was all alone…

She did the mortuary bop
She loved to be on top
Of the bluing flesh of boys who passed away
A priest said their last rights
But she was their last lay!

She worked the late shift prepping bodies
For the flame, and for the show
Trying to disguise
The way it felt inside
God forbid anyone should know
How she longed to kiss their bluing lips
And to feel their cold embrace
Until the time was right
When she can dim the lights
And dance around the place…

She did the mortuary bop
She loved to be on top
Of the bluing flesh of boys who passed away
A priest said their last rights
But she was their last lay!
