In the song St. James Infirmary, the verse near the end laments if he dies, he wants to go out in style... gambling friends to carry his coffin, girls to sing a song, money in his pocket (previous verse), and a band to raise Hell as they stroll along:
"Get six gamblers to carry my coffin
Six chorus girls to sing me a song
Put a twenty-piece jazz band on my tail gate
To raise Hell as we go along"
Now... I'll be glad to have any friend sing... these women would be fun to walk along down the road... ah to be where they'll burn me up... I forgot... I want my ashes strewn over Lake Michigan, or dumped into the Mississippi River.
Ok back to the girls... I must be going to the wrong pizza places too... this one was recorded while they were standing in line?
