(Harry)
I'd rather be dead--I'd rather be dead
I'd rather be dead than wet my bed
I'd rather be dead--I'd rather be dead
I said dead than wet my bed


Oh, I'd rather be gone--Than carry on
I'd rather go away--Than feel this way


Oh, I'd rather be there--Where you haven't got a care
And you're better off dead--Though it doesn't seem fair


(All)
Oh, I'd rather be dead--I'd rather be dead
I'd rather be dead than wet than wet my bed
I'd rather be dead--I'd rather be dead
I'd rather be dead than wet than wet my bed


(Ladies)
I'd rather keep my health--and dress myself
But you're better off dead than sitting on a shelf


(Men)
I'll tie my tie 'till the day I die
But if I have to be fed then I'd rather be dead


(All)
And when he takes my hand on the very last day
I will understand because it's better that way


(Harry)
Oh! It's nice to be alive--When the dream comes true
You'll be better off dead--It could happen to you


(All)
Oh! I'd rather be dead--I'd rather be dead
I'd rather be dead than wet my bed
I'd rather be dead--I'd rather be dead
I'd rather be dead than wet than wet my bed


(Alright! Give yourselves a big hand!)
