It's a Beautiful Day

from Bodega Rock by Homeboy Steve



It's a beautiful day to be dead
To stay permanently in bed
No coffee to brew or morning paper to get
lounging at the bottom of the bottomless pit

It's a great day not to be alive
Forget about living and all of their jive
no eye for eye or tit for tat
none of that is my concern down here where I'm at

I could be up in heaven, I went there at first
I was thinking of atoning and reversing this curse
but heaven was so perfect and it bored me to death
I said send me down to hell I'd rather burn instead

It's a wonderful day to be resting in peace
Though I stay pretty busy given that I'm deceased
My hands are never idle, the sinnnin never stops
There's always things to play with in the Devil's workshop

The lessons I learned, the fights that I fought
The money I earned it’s all come to naught
but don't cry for me don't while you divide up my stuff
I'll be seeing you all again soon enough

Until that day just let me say
and I mean this in the nicest possible way
If you’re looking for a place to face your final farewell
My advice to you is go to hell
