Unnatural Causes

Bungee jumping for de crazy man,
But people doing it all over de land.
On de railing of a bridge you stand,
You jump and trust your life to a big rubber band.

Chorus:
Oh, no, no, no,
There ain’t no way,
I don’t wanna die of unnatural causes today.

First you get into an aeroplane.
It stands a good chance of landing safely again.
But up you go and out you get,
While you’re hopin’ and prayin’ that your parachute works—
Man, these guys insane!

Chorus:
Oh, no, no, no,
There ain’t no way,
I don’t wanna die of unnatural causes today.

Rock-climbing on a vertical wall,
You get de right shoes and de ropes and all.
You climb up high to where de eagles call,
But for goodness’ sake, don’t you slip and
Fallllllll ...

Chorus:
Oh, no, no, no,
There ain’t no way,
I don’t wanna die of unnatural causes today.

The big city is lots of fun.
Lots to do there for ev-e-ry-one.
But!
If you alone in de street when de party’s done,
You lookin’ down de barrel of a loaded gun.

Chorus:
Oh, no, no, no,
There ain’t no way,
I don’t wanna die of unnatural causes today.
Oh, no, no, no,
There ain’t no way,
I don’t wanna die of natural causes
Today or tomorrow too.
Oh, no, no, no,
There ain’t no way,
I don’t wanna die of unnatural causes—
You can’t drag me there with wild hosses!
I don’t wanna die of unnatural causes today.
