MOSE ALLISON lyrics - What Will It Be

"What Will It Be"
(Mose Allison)

What will it be, the thing that actually kills you
Will it be the thing that thrills you

What will you have that puts you in your casket
Will you up and blow a gasket

Maybe you'll get lucky and go out in your sleep
Either way, it's safe to say that's one promise you're bound to keep

What will it be, don't say you haven't wondered
Will it be because you blundered

Maybe you'll get lucky and not feel a thing
Maybe not, what you got makes you want to give that man a ring

What will be written on that final memo
That puts you in that long black limo

Long time no see
What will it be
