Six Feet Underground

Shovel in my hand,

I dig into the land,

Twelve bells chime,

Midnight is the time.

One, two, three, now four,

Six feet down,

I dig no more.

Place the coffin in the ground.

Cover it up to muffle your sound,

No one will hear you,

Six feet underground.

Five chimes to greet the day,

Now you sleep where the dead lay.

Packing dirt on the ground,

Hush, hush,

Make no sound.

So what will you do six feet down,


Knowing that you will not be found.

Before six chimes greet the day,

I leave and continue on my way,

No one will ever find,

All those bodies I left behind.
