Written by: Harry Nilsson & PerryVocals: Harry Nilsson
with the senior citizens of the Stepney & Pinner
Choir--Club No. 6, London,
EnglandAccordian: Henry KreinRhythm Section: The Henry
Krein Quartet plus Klaus VoormanI'd rather be dead--I'd
rather be deadI'd rather be dead than wet my bedI'd
rather be dead--I'd rather be deadI said dead than
wet my bedOh, I'd rather be gone--Than carry onI'd
rather go away--Than feel this wayOh,
I'd rather be there--Where you haven't got a careAnd
you're better off dead--Though it doesn't seem fairOh,
I'd rather be dead--I'd rather be deadI'd rather be
dead than wet than wet my bedI'd rather be dead--I'd
rather be deadI'd rather be dead than wet than wet
my bed(Laidies)I'd rather keep my health--and dress
myselfBut you're better off dead than sitting on a
shelf(Men)I'll tie my tie 'till the day I dieBut if
I have to be fed then I'd rather be deadAnd when he
takes my hand on the very last dayI will understand
because it's better that wayOh!
It's nice to be alive--When the dream comes trueYou'll
be better off dead--It could happen to youOh!
I'd rather be dead--I'd rather be deadI'd rather be
dead than wet my bedI'd rather be dead--I'd rather
be deadI'd rather be dead than wet than wet my bed
(Alright! Give yourselves a big hand!)[Clapping.]
