Step Down in the Ground

There's a step down, step down in the ground
Where the lost folks go to find
The answer to the question of the meaning of life

When you're old and grey, where you gonna go
When you're lying in that wooden box and old trumpet'll blow?

If you see God, will you know?
If you see black, will it show?
If you see wood, it's too late
To find out for yourself you'll have to wait

Step down, oh way down
Step down to the grave
Step down, oh way down
And answer you will find

Gin pills for the kidney, no! save them for the wife
Wonder oil and sting no more, not in the afterlife
This cure's not in a bottle, the elixir is for free
So take a step down to the ground, hell, bring the family!

Everybody gather round take the step down to the ground
Kick the can, buy the farm, or do some good old bodily harm!

Step down, step down, way-hay-hay down
Step down, step down, way-hay-hay down

There's a step down, step down in the ground
Where the lost folks go to find
Everybody gather round take the step down to the ground

Step down, oh way down
Step down to the grave
Step down, oh way down
And answer you will find

Come on gather round, take a step down to the ground
Come on gather round, take a step down to the ground
Et cetera...
