LyriXML: The Dead Only Quickly (The 6ths ft. Neil Hannon )

Priests and fools say Cm Gm Gm/Bb F
We are but animate clayFm/Ab Eb G Cm
Rude vessels Cm Gm Gm/Bb F
Housing immortal soulsFm/Ab Eb G Cm

But the dead only quickly decayG Cm
They don't go about being born and rebornG Cm
And rising and falling like souffléG Cm
The dead only quickly decayG Cm

It would be swell Cm Gm Gm/Bb F
To see some folk burn in hellFm/Ab Eb G Cm
But when they go Cm Gm Gm/Bb F
It's just pleasant to knowFm/Ab Eb G Cm

That the dead only quickly decayG Cm
They don't go about being born and rebornG Cm
And rising and falling like souffléG Cm
The dead only quickly decayG Cm
