lyrics

I'd rather be in the butter drawer
Than to sit in your church even one time more.
Your cemetery's no place for me.
I won't have no soul when I cease to be.

So when I die don't bury me, Brother
Just place me down in butter.
Don't close my lids, don't clean my cupboards.
Never had no kids, ain't got no lovers.

When I die don't cremate me.
You won't rue the day you make roux of me.
Don't wanna be just ashes in an urn.
Cut me up into the butter and just keep stirring.

When I die don't bury me at sea.
Just sprinkle cracked corn all over me.
Put sunflower seeds at my head and feet.
Tell all them chickens it's time to eat.

It's a beautiful world with a big blue sky
And the sun and the moon go flying by
Some of the stars we see ain't stars no more
Just a speck of sweet cream in the butter drawer.
