Dumb Ways To Die

Go check this video by Melbourne Metro, singing about safety while waiting for the trains — Dumb Ways To Die. It is a fantastic song and a nicely done video. Hopefully someone from my country picks this up and change the lyrics a little.

Hike without a GPS

Poke a stick at a big dog’s ass

Stand behind a reversing car

Pick a fight at a bar

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die

Try to fish with a dynamite

Driving fast in the middle of the night

Play tug-o-war with the iron gate

Swallow a few rotten eggs

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die

Plant a flag on a high voltage pole

Go naked when it is cold

Play around with a loaded gun

Stand under the hot sun

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die

Go to work without a safety helmet

Show a big sized thug the bird

Peddle drugs on the street

Bring home a stranger for a treat

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die

Go for a swim in the monsoon season

Hit someone for no good reason

Stand on the edge of a train station platform

Take some unlabelled medication

Cut across the tracks at the station

They may not rhyme but they’re quite possibly

The dumbest way to die

The dumbest way to die

The dumbest way to die

So many dumb

So many dumb ways to die

These are my lyrics, taken from work experience and from the local news, with some wild imagination thrown in. Send me some of yours!
