lyrics

Serious, old, family man, disappointed with his love life
Found a younger woman to make love, behind the back of his wife

And when she came, bodies in flames
Pills for erection and sexual games
His mind was in pleasure and she felt the same
Forgot of his weak heart, that stopped when he came

When the family arrived on the scene
Wife and daughters shocked, but their men smiled at him
The sight of daddy naked, a smiling dead face
His daughters cried to the crow, at the funeral place

Well, everybody knows how my daddy has died
His stiff body is stuck with a permanent smile

A corpse with a smile, amusing death for a while
Remnants of a happy ending
A corpse with a smile and the guests will arrive
A face so happy, makes you wanna die

Open the casket lady, let them see
They’re already whispering anyway, let them wish, they also die like this

What is done is done, you know and you can always take something to learn
It is final, move along, remember his smile as he burns
Well, everybody knows how my daddy has died
His stiff body is stuck with a permanent smile

A corpse with a smile, amusing death for a while
Remnants of a happy ending
A corpse with a smile and the guests will arrive
A face so happy, makes you wanna die
