We Will All Go Together When We Go When you attend a funeral It is sad to think that sooner or Later those you love will do the same for you And you may have thought it tragic Not to think of other adject- Ives to think of all the weeping they will do (But don't you worry) No more ashes, no more sack cloth And an arm band made of black cloth Will someday never more adorn a sleeve. For if the bomb that drops on you Gets your friends and neighbors too There'll be nobody left behind to grieve. And we will all go together when we go, What a comforting fact that is to know. Universal bereavement, An inspiring achievement, Yes, we all will go together when we go. We will all go together when we go. All suffused with an incandescent glow. No one will have the endurance To collect on his insurance Lloyds of London will be loaded when they go. We will all fry together when we fry. We'll be french fried potatoes bye and bye. There will be no more misery When the world is our rotisserie, Yes, we all will fry together when we fry. Down by the old maelstrom There'll be a storm before the calm. And we'll all bake together when we bake. There'll be nobody present at the wake. With complete participation, In that grand incineration Nearly three billion hunks of well-done steak. We will all char together when we char. And let there be no moaning at the bar. Just sing out a Te Deum When you see that I.C.B.M. And the party will be "come as you are". We will all burn together when we burn. There'll be no need to stand and wait your turn. When it's time for the fallout, And Saint Peter calls us all out We'll just drop our agendas and adjourn. You will all go directly to your respective Valhallas Go directly. Do not pass GO. Do not collect two hundred dolla's And we will all go together when we go Ev'ry Hottentot and ev'ry Eskimo When the air becomes uranious We will all go simultaneous Yes we all will go together when we all go together Yes we all will go together when we go Words and music by Tom Lehrer Copyright Tom Lehrer DC,RG
