I Want To Be Immortal
William J. Hall - January 20, 1981

  1 I was looking
  2 For a good time -
  3 Really cooking
  4 With these friends of mine
  5 Another booking
  6 On the main line
  7 I want to be immortal
 
  8 Some call me crazy
  9 But I'm having fun
  10 Some call me lazy
  11 But I get things done
  12 The future's hazy
  13 But in the long run
 
  14 Make me an offer
  15 Where do I sign
  16 Give me the paper
  17 With the dotted line
  18 It doesn't matter
  19 'Cause I'm doing just fine
  20 I want to be immortal
 
  21 I just want to be
  22 I just want to be
  23 I want to be immortal
  24 I just want to be
  25 I just want to be
  26 I want to be immortal
 
  27 And when they shovel me into the ground
  28 I'd like to think my life was somewhat profound
  29 More than just this and that and hanging around
  30 Why can't you see
  31 I just want to be
 
  32 Within reason
  33 I don't ask for much
  34 Don't want no golden
  35 Goose or Midas touch
  36 Don't want no clothes or cars
  37 Or jewels and such
  38 Just want to be immortal
     
  39 And when they shovel me into the ground
  40 I'd like to think my life was somewhat profound
  41 More than just this and that and hanging around
  42 Why can't you see
  43 I just want to be
 
  44 I just want to be
  45 I just want to be
  46 I want to be immortal
  47 I just want to be
  48 I just want to be
  49 I want to be immortal
