Verse
Just before  my father died
He sat straight up in his bed
He smiled a smile from ear to ear
And then he laid down his head
I think he saw something astounding
And he wanted to let us all to know
That there’s nothing to be afraid of
When it comes our time to go
 
Chorus
We’ll go down by the river
They’ll all be standing there
Talking and laughing and singing
And waving their hands in the air
It looks like they’re calling us over
To that place on the other shore
Were the sun shines forever
And  troubles are no more
 
Verse
There’s so many things I know I should do
And so many people to thank
I should try to forget and never regret
All whisky and gin that I drank
I don’t know when my time will come
I wonder what to expect
I just know I’d better be ready
When the Reaper comes to collect
 
Repeat Chorus
 
Verse
How did I get to heaven?
What the Hell am I doing here?
They must have screwed up the paperwork
Or brought St. Peter some beer
Can it be that I’m forgiven
For the stupid mistakes that I make?
Just shut up – stop asking questions
Chalk it up to one lucky break
 
Repeat Chorus

Who, who is Q?
Who, who, who is Q?
Is Q the genius behind the Kung Flu?
Or a trick or treater who likes to shout “Boo”?
