barenaked ladies – long while (demo) lyrics

long while (demo)

[chorus]
it’s gonna be a long while
it’s gonna be a long, long while
gonna be a long while, living

[verse 1]
a sad, sad day
when he finally goes away
there’s gonna be a deli tray
and some tears
but it could be years

[verse 2]
everybody’s lining up
to get a piece of grandpa’s stuff
if you think that living’s tough
dying’s worse

[chorus]
it’s gonna be a long while
it’s gonna be a long, long while
it’s gonna be a long while, living

[verse 3]
it only takes a little slip
for him to fall and break his hip
and then it’s just a downhill trip
to his grave
embalmed and shaved

[verse 4]
sister wants the figurines
brother wants the fax machine
mother thinks it’s all obscene
’cause she’ll be next

[chorus]
but it’s gonna be a long while
it’s gonna be a long, long while
it’s gonna be a long while, living

[bridge]
beneath the chatter no one heard
the old man’s final dying words
he lay alone so pale and small
and whispered, “how i hate you all”
his life is not what i would call living

[verse 5]
wait until
the lawyer finally reads the will
circling above their kill
everyone will be stunned

[verse 6]
he gave it all to charity
dangled like a carrot, he
decided not to share it, we
should have known

[chorus]
grandpa’s gonna be a long while
gonna be a long, long while
gonna be a long while, living
grandpa’s gonna be long while
gonna be a long, long while
it’s gonna be a long while, living
long while,
gonna be a long, long while, living
long while,
oh he’s gonna be a long, long while,
gonna be a long while, living.
