Thread Name: Songs about getting older: 'THE FINAL FRONTIER'
Subject: RE: Getting older:
Joe, Thanks, I didn't even look for it. Here's the version that I know....

Last night I dreamt that I was bloomin' well dead
As I went to me funeral I bloomin' well said
Look at the coffin, bloomin' great handles
Ain't it grand, to be blooming well dead
Look at the altar, blooming great candles
Ain't it grand, to be blooming well dead

I felt so happy to think that I'd popped off
I said to a bloke with a nasty hacking cough
Look at the flowers, blooming great orchids,
Ain't it grand, to be blooming well dead
Look at the black hearse, blooming great 'orses
Ain't it grand, to be blooming well dead

There was another verse or two that I don't remember, something about "look at the Missus, blooming well cryin'"
