Nick Cave

Nick Cave - Lay Me Low

rate me

They're gonna lay me low (Lay me low)

They're gonna sink me in the snow

They're gonna throw back their heads and crow

When I go

They're gonna jump and shout (Lay me low)

They're gonna wave their arms about

All the stories will come out

When I go

All the stars will glow bright (Lay me low)

And my friends will give up the fight

They'll see my work in a different light

When I go

They'll try telephoning my mother (Lay me low)

But they'll end up getting my brother

Who'll spill the story on some long-gone lover

That I hardly know

Hats off to the man

On top of the world

Come crawl up here, baby

And I'll show you how it works

If you wanna be my friend

And you wanna repent

And you want it all to end

And you wanna know when

Well, do it now. don't care how

Take your final bow

Make a stand, take my hand

And blow it all to hell

They gonna inform the police chief (Lay me low)

Who'll breathe a sigh of relief

He'll say I was a malanderer, a badlander and a thief

When I go

They will interview my teachers (Lay me low)

Who'll say I was one of God's sorrier creatures

There'll print informative six-page features

When I go

They'll bang a big old gong (Lay me low)

The motorcade will be ten miles long

The world will join together for a farewell song

When they put me down below

They'll sound a fluegelhorn (Lay me low)

And the sea will rage, and the sky will storm

All man and beast will mourn

When I go

Hats off to the man

On top of the world

Come crawl up here, baby

And we can watch this damn thing turn

If you wanna be my friend

And you wanna repent

And you want it all to end

And you wanna know when

Well do it now, do it now

Take a long last bow

Take my hand, make a stand

And blow it all to hell

Lay me low ...

Lay me low, lay me low ...

When I go ...
