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.]
