Death Of A Single Man Lyrics by Brad Paisley

Brad Paisley Lyrics

Death Of A Single Man Lyrics
Remember when we got the news
Confirming our worst fears
I said he wouldn't make it six months
And others gave him a year

And sure enough, last Saturday
We paid our last respects
He left us here, still in this life
And he's gone on to the next

I've never seen him wear a tie
But he looked so natural, almost lifelike
The preacher spoke, his mother cried
When he said "Son, you may now kiss the bride."

Everyone cheered, I thought "How odd"
I didn't understand
Why with champagne and cake, we celebrate
The death of a single man

So many flowers, he was so loved,
Prior to the bride
As a matter of fact, the maid of honor
Should be disqualified

To all his friends, it's a wake-up call
If it happened to him, it can happen to us all
Nothing says it's over man,
Like a bad 80's cover band
How can we dance to "My Sharona"
At the death of a single man

He was so young, so full of dreams
Before the day he fell
Now he's gone on to a better place
Or possibly to hell

Now here we are, seems so unfair
It's poker night and there's one empty chair
So many things, we're gonna miss
His happy smile and that great laugh of his

I think of him in the after-wife (life)
I guess all good things must end.
So with Jack and Coke we'll make a toast
To the death of a single man
