lyrics

John throw me into the water, I'm burning
Don't lift me up til you see my eyes turning
They're rolling back in my head, rolling back in my head
So cast of my soul and my sin, and leave me for dead

John what's my name, I'm falling for certain
I'm looking for a rung but there's nothing believe me I'm searching
I'm going to hell, yes I'm going straight to hell
So cast of my soul and my sin. and let them ring those bells

John feel the water holding down my chest
Oh am I dying, bring out the dead in the chorus line.
And they go howl

John will you buy me a pearly white casket, break my nose if I die pretty please man I'm asking
Where is my lover, yes where is my Mary
Cast off my soul and my sin yes I've grown so weary

John feel the water filling up these lungs
Oh am I dying I can taste death on my tongue
So bittersweet
And I sing, Howl

When I die, when I die please bury me
With two tokens right over these here eyes
Take me down to St.James infirmary man where I shall linger by and by
Cuz I want those 6 crap shootin pallbearers
I want that chorus girl there to sing me her song
Put a punk rock band on my hearse wagon
To raise hell as we roll along

John feel the water holding down my chest
Oh am I dying, bring out the dead in the chorus line.
And they go howl

John what's my name, John what's my name boy, John what's my name?
