A chipper song about death

lyrics

Knockin at the window, tappin at the door
You hear the clatter of the rattlin bones
Give it all up, cause it's all gonna change
They'll make a racket till your mamas come home

Peices of the puzzle all scattered on the floor
You might never come back as you're duckin out the door
But the winds gonna blow like ya never known before
Make a racket till your mamas come home

Knockin at the window, tappin at the door
You hear the clatter of the rattlin bones
Give it all up, cause it's all gonna change
They'll make a racket till your papas come home

Tuck yourself away in a quiet little place
Oh, just a little rest in the empty space but
You know you can't hide without leavin a trace
They'll make a racket till your papas come home

Knockin at the window, tappin at the door
You hear the clatter of the rattlin bones
Give it all up, cause it's all gonna change
They'll make a racket till you're comin on home

Turn around the corner, double back tip it over
Still you see it comin lookin over your shoulder
Time to give it up cause it's all gonna change
They'll make a racket till you're comin' on home

Knockin at the window, tappin at the door
You hear the clatter of the rattlin bones
Give it all up, cause it's all gonna change
They'll make a racket till you're comin on home

Knockin at the window, tappin at the door
You hear the clatter of the rattlin bones
Give it all up, cause it's all gonna change
They'll make a racket till you're comin on home

You feel it in your hands and you feel it in your feet
Oh, you feel it in your chest when your heart skips a beat
Well it ain't so tidy bein' picked so clean
Make a racket till you're comin on home

Knockin at the window, tappin at the door
You hear the clatter of the rattlin bones
Give it all up, cause it's all gonna change
They'll make a racket till you're comin on home

Knockin at the window, tappin at the door
You hear the clatter of the rattlin bones
Give it all up, cause it's all gonna change
They'll make a racket till you're comin on home
