Johnston, Daniel - My Baby Cares For The Dead Lyrics




My baby cares for the dead, I said:
Come join the living baby, the bright sunshine
And it's so great to be alive and have a good time
But my baby hung around the dead
Making money acting friendly with the funeral family
And she was wed

My baby married a rich man mama, what can I do?
She cares for the dead now mama, she'll care for you
And my baby had a baby, not by me, but by him
Her lover who cares for the dead
And that birth meant the death of our love

I know someday my baby will care for me
She'll [?] and dress me mama, real fancy
And she'll lay me in a coffin
Comb my hair, put marbles in my eyes, ey-eye

I know someday my baby will care for me...
My baby cares for the dead

    What he says in 1:06 (she'll bleed?)

    Benson Langdon

    Adrià Montoya yeah, I think he’s referring to the fact that she’ll bleed his body, as in remove the blood from his body after he dies, which is commonly done in mortuary care when preserving a corpse
