Look at the Coffin
“Isn’t it Grand�
(Trad.)

               D                          G
Look at the coffin - Bloody fine handles
               D                                          A
And isn’t it grand, boys, to be bloody well dead
                      D         G                                  D
Let’s not have a sniffle - Let’s have a bloody good cry
     G                              D
And always remember, the longer you live
     A                                D
The sooner you bloody well die


Look at the preacher - bloody sanctimonious
And isn’t it grand, boys, to be bloody well dead
Let’s not have a sniffle - Let’s have a bloody good cry
And always remember, the longer you live
The sooner you bloody well die

Look at the Mourners - bloody great hypocrites

Look at the flowers - they’re all bloody withered

Look at the widow - bloody fine woman
