    Remains of the Day

    BONE JANGLES: Hey, give me a listen, your corpses of cheer

    At least those of you, who still got an ear

    Ill tell you a story, make a skeleton cryOf our own jubiliciously lovely corpse bride

    EVERYBODY: Die die we all pass away

    Dont wear a frown cause its really OKYou might try and hide and you might try and prayBut we all end up the remains of the day

    Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

    Yeah Yeah Yeah

    BONE JANGLES: Well, our girls was a beauty known for miles aroundWhen a mysterious stranger came into town

    He was plenty good looking, but down on his cash

    And our poor little baby she fell hard and fastWhen her daddy said no, she just couldnt cope

    So our lovers came up with a plan to elope

    EVERYBODY: Die die we all pass away

    Dont wear a frown cause its really OK

    You might try and hide and you might try and prayBut we all end up the remains of the day

    Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

    Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah YeahYeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

    Yeah Yeah Yeah

    - Instrumental break

    BONE JANGLES: Yeah, so they conjured up a plan to meet late at night

    They told not a soul, kept the whole thing tightNow her mothers wedding dress fit like a glove

    You dont need much when youre really in love

    Except for a few things, or so Im toldLike the family jewels and a satchel of gold

    Then next to the graveyard by the old oak treeOn a dark foggy night at a quarter to three

    She was ready to go but where was he?

    BONE JANGLES: She waitedMR. & MRS PLUM: And then?

    BONE JANGLES: There in the shadows, was it her man?

    GROUP: And then?BONE JANGLES: Her little heart little heart beat so loud

    GROUP + HEAD WAITER: And then?BONE JANGLES: And then baby, everything went black

    Now when she opened her eyes, she was dead as dustHer jewels were missing and her heart was bustSo she made a vow lying under that tree

    That shes wait for her true love to come set her freeAlways waiting for someone to ask for her hand

    When out of the blue comes this groovy young man

    Who vows forever to be by her sideAnd thats the story of our Corpse Bride

    EVERYBODY: Die die we all pass away

    Dont wear a frown cause its really OKYou might try and hide and you might try and pray

    But we all end up the remains of the day

    And I know that I am deadYet the pain here that I feelTry and tell me its not real

    And it seems that I still have a tear to shed

    MAGGOT: The sole redeeming feature from that little creature is that shes

    AliveSPIDER: Over rated

    CORPSE BRIDE: If I touch a burning candle I can feel no painIn the ice or in the sun its all the same

    Yet I feel my heart is aching

    Though it doesnt beat its breakingAnd the pain here that I feelTry and tell me its not real

    I know that I am deadYet it seems that I still have some tears to shed
