IT’S A STIFF

by David Lefkowitz (to the music of “Let it Snow”)

Oh, the weather outside is frozen, so a Brooklyn church was chosen
All bundled in a blanket and a rag
There’s a small baby corpse in a bag.

The mother didn’t want to have her
So now she’s a blue cadaver
And it stinks if you take a whiff
It’s a stiff, it’s a stiff, it’s a stiff.

All the congregants in the church
They try to sympathize with the mother
`cause maybe in nine more months,
She’ll make a lifeless brother.

`Cause she didn’t really have an option
`cept birth control, abortion or adoption
When you’re stuck with a useless tot,
Let it rot, let it rot, let it rot.

Well, it’s kinda hard feeling merry
When you’ve got a bag of bones to bury
There’s very little skin inside;
Mummified, mummified, mummified.

They’ll measure her casket size
While a sermon’s being written
And makeup will soon disguise
Fingers all black and frostbitten. (crack!)

Now the temperature may be frigid
Enough to make a newborn rigid
Too late to save the infant’s soul.
Dig a hole, dig a hole, dig a hole.

It was just the baby’s time to die.
Wonder why, wonder why, wonder why.
