Song Meaning
Verse 1
Satan, Satan thought up a plan,
Dressed as a man
Walking the earth and since he began
The world is hell for you and me.
Verse 2
But what a heaven it will be
When that man is dead and gone.
When that man is dead and gone.
We'll go dancing down the street
Kissing everyone we meet
When that man is dead and gone.
What a day to wake up on.
What a way to greet the dawn.
Hap- hap- happy, yes indeed!
On the morning when we read
That that man is dead and gone.
Verse 3
We've got a date
To celebrate
The day we catch up with that one man spreading hate.
His account is overdrawn.
And his chances are in pawn.
Some fine day the news will flash
Satan with the small moustache
Is asleep beneath the lawn
When that man is dead and gone.
Verse 4
Come on now, we're going to celebrate.
He's the guy that's spreading hate.
His account is overdrawn.
And his chances are in pawn.
Some fine day the news will flash
Satan with the small moustache
Is asleep beneath the lawn.
When that man is dead and gone-
What a day to wake up on!
What a way to greet the dawn!
When a certain man is dead and gone!
