Death of a Single Man

Remember when we got the news Confirming our worst fears I said he wouldn't make it six months And others gave him a year And sure enough last Saturday We paid our last respects He left us here still in this life And he's gone on to the next I'd never seen him wear a tie But he looked so natural, almost lifelike The preacher spoke, his mother cried When he said "Son, you may now kiss the bride" Everyone cheered, I thought how odd I didn't understand Why with champagne and cake we celebrate The death of a single man So many flowers, he was so loved Prior to the bride As a matter of fact The maid of honor should be disqualified To all his friends, it's a wake-up call If it happened to him It can happen to us all Nothing says it's over man Like a bad 80's cover band How can we dance to My Sharona At the death of a single man He was so young So full of dreams Before the day he fell Now he's gone on to a better place Or possibly to hell Now here we are, seems so unfair It's poker night and there's one empty chair So many things we're gonna miss His happy smile and that great laugh of his I think of him in the afterwife, life I guess all good things must end So with Jack and Coke, we'll make a toast To the death of a single man
