party time

come on join the flock of us – today and tomorrow
off to the block we go on fun day – hoorayly hurray
merrily we roll along – roll along – yes we do it today
merrily we jog along – jog along hurriedly get the pay
until the day we die – we’ll party all our lives
next day we die – we’ll tell the whole lie again
indeed it was a fun day when everyone went to play
til the day we die – we’ll tell another lie – lie and lie
you’ll better have a very good day or you’ll pay
