On The Day I Die - The Shires

On the day I die
You better dance, don't cry
Baby, I'll be leaving on a high
On the day I die
Find the keys to my old car
Pray it starts and take it for a drive

Roll the windows down
Turn the music up
Start singing (Whoa, whoa)
And get lost in a song
And take the wrong road home
Like I always used to

If I did one thing right
It was you and I
Oh, I loved you
I'll always love you
So play it loud all night
If I'm not by your side
I'm up above you
I'll always love you

I've had a good, good life
So, darling, dance, don't cry
On the day I die

On the day I die
I want nothing left unspoken
I can't rely on hoping that you know
So dry your eyes
'Cause I don't plan on dying yet
Just take my hand
How I lucky I am
The only life I get

I get to hold you close
With the lights down low
And dance real slow (Whoa, whoa)
When you hear this song
And when I'm gone
I know that you'll know

If I did one thing right
It was you and I
Oh, I loved you
I'll always love you
So play it loud all night
If I'm not by your side
I'm up above you
I'll always love you

I've had a good, good life
So, darling, dance, don't cry
On the day I die
On the day I die (Whoa, whoa)
(Whoa, whoa)
On the day, on the day I die, oh (Whoa, whoa)
(Whoa, whoa)

On the day I die
You better dance, don't cry
Oh baby, I'll be leaving on a high
On the day I die
