Intro: Db  Bbm7  Ab  Gb    


Db
Don't cry when I die
Bbm7
When it's my time I probably won't die
Ab    
I'll just lie down and close my eyes
Gb    
And think about stuff


Db                      
These eyes got too wide 
Bbm7
seen too much of life's goodbyes
Ab    
Should have spent less time making loot
Gb                                            Db
And spent more time in my birthday suit with you

Interlude: Db  Bbm7  Ab  Gb    

Db                       Bbm7
And everybody upstairs, everybody down stairs
Ab                       Gb    
I'm not gonna have time to hang out with them
Gb                                Db
'cause I'll be hanging out with you


    Db                         Bbm7
Not Jimi Hendrix, Jesus or the dude
               Gb                   Ab    
Who played the sherriff in Blazing Saddles
Db             Db                Bbm7               Gb    
You not Chris Farley Mr Rodgers oh I've waited so long
        Ab               Db
You can finally meet my Mom

Interlude: Db  Bbm7  Ab  Gb

Db                 
Life is good, but love it's better
Bbm7
Even Bieber ain't forever
Ab    
We all got to go you know
Gb    
So you might as well go in style


Db                 Bbm7
Everybody prayin, everybody singing
Ab                          Gb    
I'm not gonna have time to hang out with them
Gb                                Db
'cause I'll be hanging out with you


    Db                          Bbm7
Not Gilda Radner, Buddha or the dude
        Gb             Ab    
Who had pop rocks and soda at the same time
Db        Db                           Bbm7               Gb    
You, not Jesse James, Paul Newman and oh I've waited so long
        Ab               Gb    
You can finally meet my Mom.


Bbm7
I'm not making light of things
    Ab                                         Gb    
But who's to say who's right with things like this

There's so much that we miss
                    Bbm7
Tryin so hard to be rich and famous
Ab    
Pretty and thin, to win
       Gb    
It's a shame that youth is wasted on the young
          Db                              Db  
So forget everything and just be with me here now
                  Gb    
For as long as we can and whoever goes first save a spot


Db        Db                            Bbm7             Gb            Ab    
You, not Etta James, Bob Marley or the girls who won my heart along the way
Db        Db                    Bbm7                  Gb    
You, not Sitting Bull, Ella or Bach and I almost forgot
        Ab               Db
You can finally meet my Mom


Db                      Bbm7
You can finally meet my Mom
Gb       Ab               Db
You can finally meet my Mom


Db                      Bbm7
You can finally meet my Mom
Gb       Ab               Db
You can finally meet my Mom


Db                           Db      
No Steve Jobs, or Ty Cobbs, Al Capone or any other mobs
Bbm7                             Gb                      Ab    
No Whitney Houston, Chet Baker, André the Giant or the Undertaker


     Db    Db                      Bbm7
Just you, you can finally meet my Mom
Gb       Ab               Db
You can finally meet my Mom


Db                      Bbm7
You can finally meet my Mom
Gb       Ab               Db

You can finally meet my Mom
