about

Humor in the face of mortality, a grand tradition. The music supports it all the way through, I think, carries it in fact.

lyrics

Traveling once hit a hell of a bump
only slowed me down for awhile
had to leave my Prius by the side of the road
and had to walk a half and a mile

At the station there was waitin
a woman skilled and patient
with a wrench and a wrecker
a smart engine inspector
said somethin 'bout a vector
a charming roadside lecture
had me muy contento happy headin home

I don't wanna die in a hospital
I don't wanna die in an automobile
I don't wanna die in an airplane fall
I don't wanna die at all (2x)

2.
I don't wanna wrestle no bloody big “C”
neither do I wanna have a coronary
I don't wanna contact no pneumonia
nor do I want encounter with a gun

a motorcycle's somethin that I don't wanna ride
I would have had to tell you if I ever had to lie
I think you think I know what i'm talkin about
I'd really rather settle like a tater on a couch

I don't wanna die in a hospital
I don't wanna die on a motorcycle
I don't wanna die in an airplane fall
I don't wanna die at all (2x)
