Post mortem blues
Lyrics and music R.G.Theil

Oh this party scene is sure swinging hot,
she’s a half cut lady giving all that she’s got.
With his tongue in her cheek, she’s wanting to speak.
He says “Don’t talk baby, my brain’s feeling weak.”

There’s a face next to mine, asking why I’m so tall,
why I’m standing so still, my back to the wall.
“Well the architect who’s passed out, he’s a clown,
says if I don’t stand here, it’ll all fall down”.

Chorus
He’s got the post mortem blues (2x)
He’s got the post mortem blues again over you.

She’s a soft-hearted beauty who’s been watching my lips,
She turns to a friend who’s caressing her hips,
saying “What’s up with your mate, he looks like he’s died”.
Oh his tongue can’t move when his brain’s paralysed.

Chorus
I’ve got the post mortem blues (2x)
I’ve got the post mortem blues again over you.

So with the dawn in my eyes and my head on the floor,
I swim through the debris, reaching the door.
I pause in the doorway, with the hostess, and grin,
“Oh, it’s the same worn story, just how do you win?

Chorus
I’ve got the post mortem blues (2x)

I’ve got the post mortem blues again over you.”
