The Hearse Song is a funny scary poem about what happens when you die. Versions of this traditional song has been around for decades and one version was even featured in the book “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark”.
The Hearse Song
Don’t ever laugh when a hearse goes by,
You just might be the next to die
They’ll wrap you in a big white sheet
From your head down to your feet.
They’ll throw you in a big black box
And fill your grave with dirt and rocks.
And there you’ll lie for about a week,
Until your coffin springs a leak.
The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
The worms play pinochle on your snout.
They’ll eat your ears, they’ll eat your nose,
They’ll gobble your fingers and your toes.
But then a great big rat will come
Crawl in your mouth and out your bum.
Your skin will turn a sickly blue,
Your brains will melt and turn to goo
You spread them on a slice of bread,
And that’s what you eat when you are dead.
Who laughs when a hearse goes by?
Now I hate death even more!! But in our hindus we burn our deads…so I guess i won’t experience all that!
That was a very funny and creepy song that I actually remember from my childhood…
