FI've B♭seen a lot of sights and E♭traveled many Fmiles B♭Shook a thousand hands and seE♭men my share of E♭smiles B♭I've caused some great concern and E♭told one too many Flies B♭And now I see the world through these Fsad, old, jaded eyes B♭So what if I threw a party and E♭all my friends were there? B♭Acquaintances, relatives, tFhe girls who never cared B♭You'll have a host of rowdy hooligans in a E♭big line out the door FSide by side with Sister Barbara, Chief Wells and Bobby 'Orr B♭I'd invite the Flannigans E♭Replace the window you smashed out B♭I'd apologize the Sluggo for Fpissing on his couch B♭I'll see Mrs. McAuliffe and sE♭o many others soon FThen I'll say I'm sorry for what I did sleepwalking in her room B♭So what if I threw a party and iE♭nvited Mayor Menino? B♭He'd tell you to get a permit FWell this time Tom I don't think so B♭It's a neighborhood reunion E♭But now we'd get along FVan Morrison would be there and he'd sing me one last song B♭With a backup band of bass players to E♭keep us up all night B♭Three handsome four string troubadours FAnd Newton's own Fat Mike B♭I'll be in the can having a smoke withE♭ Garv and Johnny Fitz FBut there's a back up in the bathroom FCause the Badger's got the shits
ChorusB♭You may bury me with an enemy in E♭Mount Calvary B♭You can stack me on a pyre and sFoak me down with whiskey B♭Roast me to a blackened crisp and tE♭hrow me in a pile FI could really give a shit - I'm going out in style B♭You can take my urn to Fenway E♭spread my ashes all about B♭Or you can bring me down to Wolly Beach FAnd dump the sucker out B♭Burn me to a rotten crisp and E♭toast me for a while FI could really give a shit - I'm going out in style B♭Make me up dress me up E♭Feed me a big old shot B♭Of embalming fluid highballs FSo I don't start to rot B♭Now take me to McGreevy's E♭I wanna buy one final round FThat cheap prick would peel an orange in his pocket FThen hurry up and suck 'em down B♭If there's a god the girls you loved E♭Will all come walking through the door B♭Maybe they'll feeld bad for me and this Fstiff will finally score B♭You've got the bed already E♭And the nerve and courage too FCause I've be slugging from FA stash of Desi Queally's 1980s FBathtub brew Repeat Chorus-- Spread my ashes all about Dump the sucker out Toast me for a while I'm going out in style
