Die Die, We All Pass Away ( Remains of the Day)
Danny Elfman
Die Die, We All Pass Away ( Remains of the Day)

Hit it boys

Hey, Give me a listen
You corpses of cheer
At least those of you
Who still got an ear
I’ll tell you a story
Make a skeleton cry
Of our own jubiliciously 
Lovely Corpse Bride

Die, Die, We all pass away
But don’t wear a frown
Because it’s really okay
You might try to hide
And you might try to pray
But we all end up the remains of the day

(ya,ya,ya,yaya,ya,ya,ya)

Well, our girl was a beauty
Known For miles around
When a mysterious stranger
Came into town
He was plenty good-looking
But down on his cash
And our poor little baby
She fell hard and fast
When he daddy said no
She just couldn’t cope
So our lovers came up with
a plan to elope

Die,Die, We all pass away
But don’t wear a frown
Because it’s really okay
You might try to run
And you might try to pray
But we all end up the remains of the day

(ya,ya,ya,yaya,ya,ya,yaya)



So they conjured up a plan 
To meet late at night
They told not a soul
Kept the whole thing tight
Now, her mother’s wedding dress
Fit like a glove
You don’t need much
when your really in love

Except for a few things
Or so I’m told
Like the family jewels
And a satchel of gold
Then next to the graveyard
By the old oak tree
On a dark foggy night
At a quarter to 3
She was ready to go
But where was he?

(And then?)
She waited
(And then?)
There in the shadows,was it her man?
(And then?)
Her little heart beat so loud
(And then?)
And then, baby, everything went black

Now, when she opened her eyes
She was dead as dust
Her jewels were missing
And her heart was bust
So she made a vow
Lying under that tree
That she’d wait for her true love
To come set her free
Always waiting for someone
To ask for her hand

Then out of the blue
Comes this groovy young man
Who vows forever
To be by her side
And that’s the story
Of our Corpse Bride

Die,Die, We all pass away
But don’t wear a frown
Because it’s really okay
You might try to run
And you might try to pray
But we all end up
The remains of the day
