Are the deeds of a man in his  
You shuffle in gloom   the sickroom
And talk to yourself as you  .

Life is a short,   moment
And death is a long cold  .
You get your chance to try in the twinkling of an  
Eighty years, with luck, or even  .

So all aboard for the American  ,
And maybe you'll   it to the top.
And mind how you go, and I can tell you, 'cause I  
You may find it   to get off.

And I am the dead man's  .
And he was buried    a mole in a fox hole.
And   is still on the run.

And who calls the   in the courtroom?
And who beats the funeral  ?

Are the deeds of a man in his  .
You shuffle in   in the sickroom
And talk to yourself till you  .
