bury me pretty but not deep

bury me pretty but not deep

bury my body by the river i kiss most
i want to live downtown forever and a week
build me a house on the border
east west and me be lovers watching the sun come up straight down broadway

put me in a tomb
wrap me in a sheet
and leave my body for the hungry
bury me pretty but not deep
bury me pretty but not deep
bury me pretty but not deep

bury my body by the river i kiss most
i will have lived down here long enough
bury me high
anywhere on the lower east or west side
