She woke up this morning,
It was a fine sunny day,
She said "LongJohn please stay"
But he had to run away,
Cuz he was busy,
Busy making lottsa dough.
So she told him he better
Have some fun before he's old...

You'll be the richest guy in the graveyard,
With money in the bank.
You'll be the fattest cat who's stretched out flat,
And have yourself to thank.
"Now what's the good of earning,
With no time for spending,
You know you're simply heading,
For a "horizontal" ending.."
The richest guy in the graveyard,
LongJohn you're working far too hard!

You'll climb the golden gate to the graveyard, that gate is not so great.
You'll be the slickest creep who's six feet deep,
You'll find it out too late;

Lorelei can't imagine
How ya can be a good lover,
In a brass bound box,
With a rosewood cover,
"You'll be the richest guy in the graveyard,
Just you wait and see.
You'll be the "gone-est" ghoul whoever went to school,
And that ain't no use to me."

"I'd rather be found on a flop house bed,
Then down in the ground-with dirt on my head,
You'll be the richest guy in the graveyard,
LongJohn won't ya hear my plea?
So just go to work ya work-a-holic jerk,
But please make out the will to me!"

Have some fun before he's OLD???? Doesn't she know she's too late??? LOL

Toerag: I love this... and it's a fine idea. *G* If he won't come play... can he at least put us in the will? I'd really like to retire early... all his hard work might as well accomplish SOMETHING! LOL.

TOE~
My stars !
Here it is one year later -
and you're STILL picking on poor LongJohn.
Well .... whenever you're both around.

Funny, funny man !
What fun to plunder in the archives !
