They call me the Happy Mortician,
For that is what I am.
I've seen bodies of all kinds,
Infant to senior, woman and man.
Ironically enough, it is my life
To ready and prepare the dead.
It is my job to fix them up,
And compound them toe to head.
Being an undertaker
Has positive and negative ends:
I don't have to worry about gossip,
For the corpses are my only friends.
"Don't worry," I say to the dead,
"I'll fix you up so your family can mourn.
I'll make sure you look your best,
So your loved ones don't feel forlorn."
In my profession, I've seen things
People should never see.
I am the Happy Mortician,
That's all I'll ever be.
