1920s style ode to debauchery n existentialism

lyrics

1. Bury me in a black and white shroud
Make sure no one talks too loud
Wrap me up tight the way you held me close
We're cut from the same cloth.
2. Bury me when the East wind blows
When the crow flies and the snow still blows
Make sure you kiss me on my cold dead nose
We're cut from the same cloth.
v. Warp and weave, we have the same needs
Rum and coke and a little whiskey
Knit and purl, slip one past your knees
Weʼre cut from the same cloth.
3. Everyone knows Iʼm coarse and brave
Donʼt need no epitaph, no quotes on my grave
You know me better than I know myself
Weʼre cut from the same cloth.
5. Light a cigarette for each day I breathed
Hold a handkerchief with dandified ease
Make sure each pallbearer has tattooed sleeves
Weʼre cut from the same cloth.
6. And you know if I donʼt go first
Iʼll throw flowers in front of your hearse
Roses ʻn clover, bleeding hearts and lilies
Weʼre cut from the same cloth.
v. Warp and weave, we have the same needs
Rum and coke and a little whiskey
Knit and purl, slip one past your knees
Weʼre cut from the same cloth.
4. I need a night more blue than black
Cold and windy, donʼt forget that
Make sure youʼre dressed for when the East wind blows
Weʼre cut from the same cloth.
v. Warp and weave, we have the same needs
Rum and coke and a little whiskey
Knit and purl, slip one past your knees
Weʼre cut from the same cloth.
