Choppin' Block

lyrics

It's a bloody world
Everybody knows
We just stand in a line
And we hold our nose
When the hammer comes
'Neath the pearly gate
We all bend over
And receive one fate
(CHORUS)
More heads for the choppin' block
More heads for the choppin' block
They won't ever
They won't never stop
More heads for the choppin' block
Aight heads les' roll
(harmonica)
All the judges slam their hammers
The Hangman, he checks his trap
O! a big crowd begins to gather
They wanna see whose neck's gonna snap
Sorry Hangman, it ain't what ya thought
This one here, itsa choppin' block
All yor ties they are for knot
Even the judge is gettin' chopp'd!
(CHORUS)
More heads for the choppin' block
More heads for the choppin' block
O! weepin' eye
I see why you gotta cry
All of us here
Some time we gotta die
Even you, even me
I guess we're gonna
Wait and see
In the shadow of the guillotine
A clear image could be seen
Some saw the head of the King
I saw the Queen
The Joker laughed
He slapped the Jack
But then the Joker jumped
The next card called for the choppin' block
Left him stumped
More heads for the choppin' block
More heads for the choppin' block
More heads for the choppin' block
Theres always wood to be chopped
