Song Description

Crackers is buried, before a gathering angry at the Bank's role.

Story Behind the Song

Crackers was the battler who lost his battle and took his life, all in the context of the Paper Fortune$ tale.

Lyrics

He?s Dead, He?s Dead Mourners
Victor & Mary Lou
He?s dead, he?s dead, he died to hide the shame
The life he led turned out to be a game
He lost the toss of life, pride in his name
His fortune gone, he never was
The same
We care, are here, to see him laid to rest
We cried, he died, and now his soul is blessed
Yet still, his till, his Bank
Is unimpressed
Bank Manager:
I have to get the money back!
ALL DEBT MUST BE
REDRESSED
Mourners:
He?s dead, he?s dead, he?s dead, he died to hide the shame
He lost the toss of life, pride in his name
Wise Old Man:
He wasn?t big, he didn?t owe a lot
He didn?t indulge in some high-flying plot
He didn?t flee, he died instead:

Can?t Banks respect the small and dead?

Mourners:
He?s dead, he?s dead, he?s dead, he died to hide the shame
He lost the toss of life, pride in his name
