Shuffle Off to Buffalo (with a twist)

Just for fun. A non-political parody! (Didn't know I had it in me, didya?) This happened quite by accident over the weekend. A moment of hilarity from a comment by my dearest friend. I think I'd like this played at my funeral someday. (I always wanted to know how to tap dance...maybe someday....)

To the tune of Shuffle Off to Buffalo
original lyrics by Hal Kemp

a Paddy Whack

Won't you step up to my casket
It's the only time I'll ask it
Now it's dust to soil
Oooh Oooh Oooh
Off I'm gonna shuffle
Shuffle off this mortal coil.

No Viagra or Cialis
Needed in my brand new palace
Ain't that apropos?
oooh oooh Oooh!
Off I'm gonna shuffle
Shuffle to that golden glow.

Today, Grim Reaper paid a visit
And made the outcome crystal clear
Just a moment quite exquisite
But you can join me later, dear.

Now I'm singing like Cole Porter
No more home of bricks and mortar
'Cause it's time to go
oh oh oh
Off I'm gonna shuffle
Shuffle off and do-si-do.

You might think that I'm just napping
But in Heaven I'll be tapping
Dancing heel-to-toe
oh oh oh
Off I'm gonna shuffle
Shuffle off so, Cheerio!
