Hell in a Handbasket

Oh, and now the end is near
And I face that final curtain.
So goodbye to strife.
This is the last dance of my life.
Lord, of this I’m certain.
I’ve been a sinner, I’ve been a saint.
Done both good and evil deeds.
Oh, but in the end, I was good to my friends.
And that’s good enough for me.
Oh, good Lord, they say all souls you forgive.
Well, if that’s true then why
Does there need to be a hell?
Hey, what’s the sulfury smell?
Now I can feel the fire creepin’ up my thigh!

I’m goin’ to Hell (He’s goin’ to Hell)
In a handbasket (In a handbasket).
It’s a bohemian rhapsody.
Oh, Galileo! mama mia!
Scaramouch! Scaramouch!
Old Beelzebub’s got a devil put
Aside for me!
I’m goin’ to Hell (He’s goin’ to Hell)
In a handbasket (In a handbasket).
Of my flesh they’ll make a feast.
I’m gonna be there in that number.
That’s 666 the number of the beast.

I’m goin’ to Hell (He’s goin’ to Hell)
In a handbasket (In a handbasket).
Well, at least I’ll have a view
Oh, I will see the fire
Through the rusty razor-wire.
Oh, don’t you worry, I saved a seat for you!
I’m goin’ to Hell (He’s goin’ to Hell)
In a handbasket (In a handbasket).
And I might like it that way.
No, this ain’t no lie, I’d rather be Kentucky fried
Than alive and kickin’ in Jersey any day!

I’m goin’ to Hell (He’s goin’ to Hell)
In a handbasket (In a handbasket).
I’d pray if I had a guile.
No, this ain’t no fib,
I’d rather be a splatter on the Devil’s bib.
’cause on my knees repentin’ ain’t my style.
I’m goin’ to Hell (He’s goin’ to Hell)
In a handbasket (In a handbasket).
Oh, please don’t pray for me.
No, I don’t need to be saved.
Of the Devil I ain’t afraid.
There ain’t nothin’ he can do
That ain’t already been done to me.

I’m goin’ to Hell (He’s goin’ to Hell)
In a handbasket (In a handbasket).
And I’ll have good company, too.
’cause if I was so bad,
Then there’s no need to be sad
’cause everybody else will be there, too.
Includin’ you!
Oh, good Lord, I only ask you forgive
The self-righteous who decieve;
When your words they twist.
We both know Hell don’t exist
Except in the minds
Of the poor fools who believe.
