Chorus: My, haven't you heard? My, haven't you heard?
Yeah, well, I'm so surprised to see you Up and out of bed I guess you haven't heard yet That last week you were found dead Yeah, I heard it from the one Who heard it from the one who knew The one who heard it from the one Who never checked with you I hesitate to mention it You know how these things spread But just between the two of us Here's what someone said They said,
It was the rumor of a stranger We assumed that it was true It never crossed our minds To ever call and check with you We just announced it at our meetings We prayed for your soul We waited for the nature of the beast To take its toll Now if we didn't love you We wouldn't make it known We're just minding random business Cuz we've got none of our own I say
I hardly can believe it And I hope it isn't so I heard it from a person Who said he didn't know The others that I've shared it with They've heard the rumor too And now it really doesn't Even matter if it's true So just between the two of us, I'll tell you what I'll do Go ahead, admit you're dead I'll say I never talked to you
