Brand New Suit

My family is taking me out today In search of a brand new suit One in which they can bury me I'll be leaving here real soon You can tell it in my walk You can see it in my eyes If I last more than another month Even I will be surprised You can hear it in my rasp You can smell it on my breath Not a whole lot of need to ask Who it is that's kissing death That's why they feel the urgent need To go out and buy me a brand new suit Something that will match my casket Something in a baby blue
