"DEAD DUCK"

Verse 1
My friend and I were duck hunting one day.
One day we were
Back at the swamp near that Georgian bay.
My friend said to me, "Leave the dead ducks lay!
Bag the live ones, or they'll get away."

Verse 2
I see, my life can be the same.
Sure as shootin', I'm a live one,
Definitely game.
Devil's out to get me, out to gun me down.
He's got a whole hunting party lookin' around.
[They're out to bag me, bag you.]

Chorus
Bag the live ones now,
Leave the dead ones lay.
Bag the live ones now,
Leave the dead ones lay.
Don't let them get away.

Bag the live ones now,
Leave the dead ones lay.
Bag the live ones now,
Leave the dead ones lay.
Don't let them get away, hey.

Verse 3
So I said to my friend, “You'd better listen here.
Don't try to tell me I don't have to beware.
Surveillance cameras are everywhere.
They even know the color of my underwear.”

Verse 4
The moral of the story is simple, but true:
If you're a live one, they're after you,
‘Cause Luce is out there, and if he gets what he wants,
You'll end up duck soup -in someone's Chinese restaurant.

Don't wanna be a dead duck.
No, don't wanna be a dead duck.

Chorus
Bag the live ones now,
Leave the dead ones lay.
Bag the live ones now,
Leave the dead ones lay.
Don't let them get away.
