Taking Notes and Stealing Quotes on this song

Cover-version

 

Words by
Keith Reid

If Iím gonna die
Wanna die in the VIP room
Not out in the cold
With the rest of the goons
If Iím gonna choke
Gotta be on a silver spoon
If Iím gonna croak
Gotta be on a velvet rope

If Iím eating pie
I want the best silver plate
I ainít gonna lie
I want a big slice of the cake
If weíre drinking fine champagne
Then Iím drinking a lake
Iíve gotta be eating
Off the fine silver plate

I wanna be shining
Up there with the stars
Gonna get me a sun tan
Aní some big fat cigars
Gotta buy me some poon tang
With real crazy jars
I wanna be shining
Up there with the stars

If Iím gonna die
Wanna die in the VIP room
Not out in the cold
With the rest of the goons
If Iím gonna choke
Gotta be on a silver spoon
If Iím gonna die
I wanna die in the VIP room
