This is Daibhid's fault. I can't stop at just one Beatle's filk, you know.

*I am the Scytheman* (TTTO of 'I am the walrus')

I am he that you will see when you are gone and life's ceased altogether
Don't try to run I'm one you can't shun, you can't pass me by
You're dying
Lying on a deathbed, waiting for the Man to come
Poisoned by a Vizier, stupid bloody oysters
Man, you been a naughty boy, you let your guard down once
I am the Scytheman, this is the Duty
I am the Terminus, goo goo g'joob

Mister City Watchman sitting
Pretty little Watchmen in a row
You're all gonna die each one by and by, don't try to run
You're dying, You're dying,
You're dying, You're dying,

Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog's eye
Seamstresses and fishwives, medium and priestess,
Boy, you been a naughty girl you didn't wash your hands
I am the Scytheman, this is the Duty
I am the Terminus, goo goo g'joob g'goo goo g'joob

Sitting in an eldritch garden waiting for the sun
If the sun don't come, you get a tan
From drinking some of Albert's tea
I am the Scytheman, this is the Duty
I am the Terminus, goo goo g'joob g'goo goo g'joob

Junkies drinkers choking smokers,
Don't you think the joker laughs at you?
(hee hee hee ho ho ho ha ha ha)
See how they smile even though they all die,
See how they died
You're dying

Creature from the Dungeons, climbing up the Tower of Art
Rats down in the sewers reading Mr. Bunnsy
You should have seen the Raven pecking Edgar Allan Poe
I am the Scytheman, this is the Duty
I am the Terminus, goo goo g'joob g'goo goo g'joob
Goo goo g'joob g'goo goo g'joob g'goo
