I'm all dressed up with nowhere to go Walkin' with a dead man over my shoulder
Waiting for an invitation to arrive Goin' to a party where no one's still alive
CHORUS I was struck by lighting Walkin' down the street I was hit by something last night in my sleep It's a dead man's party Who could ask for more Everybody's comin', leave your body at the door Leave your body and soul at the door . . . (Don't run away it's only me)
All dressed up with nowhere to go Walkin' with a dead man Waitin' for an invitation to arrive With a dead man . . . Dead Man . . .
Got my best suit and my tie Shiny silver dollar on either eye I hear the chauffeur comin' to the door Says there's room for maybe just one more . . .
Don't run away it's only me Don't be afraid of what you can't see Don't run away it's only me . . .
