Testo della canzone Remains of the Day (Danny Elfman), tratta dall'album Corpse Bride (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Remains of the Day - Danny Elfman

Hey!
Give me a listen, you corpses of cheer
Least less of you who still got an ear
I'll tell you a story, make your skeleton cry
Of our own judiciously lovely corpse bride

Die, die we all pass away
But don't wear a frown 'cuz it's really okay
You might try and hide, and you might try and pray
But we all end up the remains of the day

Die die die, yeah yeah, die die die

Well! A girl is a beauty known for miles around
A mysterious stranger came into town
He was plenty good lookin' but down on his cash
And our poor little baby she fell hard and fast

When her daddy said no, she just couldn't cope
So our lovers came up with a plan to elope

Die, die we all pass away
But don't wear a frown 'cuz it's really okay
You might try and hide, and you might try and pray
But we all end up the remains of the day

Die die die yeah yeah
Die die die yeah yeah
Die die die yeah yeah
Die die die yeah yeah

Yeah, so they conjured up a plan to meet late at night
They told not a soul kept the whole thing tight
Now her mother's wedding dress fit like a glove
You don't need much when you're really in love

Except for a few things or so I'm told
Like the family jewels and a satchel of gold
Then next to the graveyard by the old oak tree
On a dark foggy night at a quarter to three
She was ready to go, but where was he?

(And then) She waited
(And then) There in the shadows, was it a man?
(And then) Her little heart beat so loud!
(And then) And then baby, everything went black

Now when she opened her eyes, she was dead as dust
Her jewels were missin' and her heart was bust
So she made a vow lyin' under that tree
That she'd wait for her true love to come set her free

Always waitin' for someone to ask for her hand
Then outta the blue comes this groovy young man
Who vows forever, to be by her side
And that's the story of our own, corpse bride

Die, die we all pass away
But don't wear a frown 'cuz it's really okay
You might try and hide, and you might try and pray
But we all end up the remains of the day

Yeah
