Has anybody seen me lately
I tell you why
Has anybody seen me lately
I tell you why
I caught something that made me so sick
That I thought that I would die
And I almost did

First my knees begun to tremble
My heart begin to pound
First my knees begun to tremble
My heart begin to pound, was arythmy
Got it to lost my equilibrium
Still face down on the ground

As I lay there on the cold pavement
A tear ran down my face
'Cause I thought I was dying
You boys know I'm not a religious man
But I sent a prayer out just in case, never know
You know almost immediately I have has reason to believe
That my prayer had been heard in a very special place
But this is what happened, I heard this sound

Ooooo
Yes
Oooo
Yes
Ooooo
It was harps and angels
Harps and angels
Coming near
I was too sick to roll over and see 'em
But I could hear them singing
Ever so beautifully in my ear

Then the sound began to subside
And then sound like background singers
This voice come down
From the heaven above
Was a voice full of anger from the Old Testament
A voice full of love from the new one
It was priestly love
Like it was the middle of the day

And I laid there quietly
Listening to what that voice had to say
You ain't been a good man
You ain't been a bad man
But you've been pretty bad
Lucky for you, this ain't you're time
Someone very dear to me as made another clerical error
And we're here on a bit of wild goose chase
But I want to tell you a few things 
That'll hold you in good stead
When it is your time
So you better listen close
I'm only going to say this once

[Chorus:]
Lay you on the table
Keep your business clean
Lay you on the table
Keep your business clean

Don't want no backstabbing
Ass grabbing, you know exactly what I mean
Alright girls go outta  here

Encore, encore
He spoke French
Tres bien
Encore
And off they went into the night
Almost immediately I felt better
Now I'm round here to see you boys
'Cause you know we ain't living right
And while it was fresh
I wanted to tell you
What he told me
He said

[Chorus:]
Yes there won't be no harps and angels
Coming for you
Will be trombones, kettles drums
Pitch forks and tambourines

Sing it like they did for me
Yes
Beautiful
Wish I spoke French
So actually the main thing about this story is, for me
There really is an after life
And I hope to see all of you there
Let's go get a drink
