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
