about

Topsy interprets the old man’s advice and concludes that she can’t pass on to heaven because her body hasn’t been properly buried.

lyrics

when I was young I never talked to nobody
when I was young I’d never go no where
when I was young I didn’t have no problems
no tribulation in the atmosphere
they’re gonna bury me six feet under
they’re gonna bury me six feet down
they’re gonna bury me six feet under
they’re gonna bury me six feet down
they’re gonna bury my body six feet down

and when I died I didn’t have a funeral
although a hundred people gathered round
no one gave me a proper burial
a single shovel didn’t break the ground
and decades later I have found the answer
my mortal coil I have finally found
I’ll make them bury me six feet under
they’re gonna bury me six feet down

they’re gonna bury my body six feet down
