Blue velvet jacket

He had a blue velvet jacket

Cost him an arm, a leg, a packet

He had a blue velvet jacket

Cost him an arm, a leg, a packet

And he wore it to any special occasion

That had the misfortune to come his way

There were christenings and confirmations

Proposals and long engagements

There were jobs and rich relations

There were do’s of all persuasions

He loved his blue velvet jacket

Cost him an arm, a leg, a packet

He loved his blue velvet jacket

Cost him an arm, a leg, a packet

And he constantly wore it to the end of his days

And buried him in it for rest of all time

There were processions and graduations

Ceremonies and commemorations

There were deaths of old relations

Autopsies and observations

There were wars and insurrections

Rebellions and foreign invasions

Mass killings and emigration

Corporations and Fluoridation

But still the blue velvet jacket

Which cost an arm, a leg, a packet

Remained completely intact yeah

Housing an arm, a leg and some maggots
