The Stranglers - Everybody Loves You When You're Dead

They crucify you when you get it wrong
When things are fine they put you ahead
They laugh at you with your trousers down
They pick the stones and aim them at your head

When you re alive they won t care what you said
What you deserve and all the blood you bled

It doesn t matter what you try to hide
The sun comes out and then the truth is read
Your fans will love you when you re alive
But the wreaths are laid by the rest instead

When you re alive they won t care what you said
What you deserve and all the blood you bled

Cos everybody loves you when you re dead
Kneel and pray by the side of your bed
And then everybody loves you when you re dead
Kneel and pray just like your momma said

When you re alive they won t care what you said
What you deserve and all the blood you bled
You ll turn in your grave at what s gonna be said
You ll finally be appreciated
Cos everybody loves you when you re dead
Everybody loves you when you re dead
