about

The long awaited sequel to our critically acclaimed original!

Our friends and fans have been urging us to update it for ages, but we've always said "no".
However, 2016 was such a pig of a year, with so many of our heroes dying, we couldn't say no any longer, so here it is!
Recorded & remixed over the Christmas holidays with brand new lyrics...Hope you enjoy it!

lyrics

Everybody loves you when you're dead
Everybody loves you when you're dead
And I can't get you out of my head
'cuz everybody loves you when you're dead

Lemmy was the rockin' king of London
Filled with speed and sometimes off his head
He had a Silver Machine
And only just looked mean
And everybody loves him now he's dead

Lenny used to sing us Hallelujah
A song that is the greatest, it's been said
Women came like bees to honey
Then he lost all his money
And everybody loves him now he's dead
Because...

CHORUS

It's the story of a little guy named Nelson
The purple Prince he played it all inside his head
He worked out all the angles
And slept with all The Bangles
And everybody loves him now he's dead

It's the story of a little boy named Georgie
A Father Figure stuck inside my head
He was happy he was gay
and blew everyone away
And everybody loves him now he's dead
Because...

CHORUS

It's the story of a little boy named David
They say he was the best, second to none
He was the Prettiest Star
He left us his Black Star
And finally got a US number one

Hey Keith Richards looks like he will live forever
While everyone around is dropping dead
Too bad George Michael couldn't drive
Yet Ted Nugent's still alive
And everybody wishes he was dead!

CHORUS
