  • Harvey Bodine
    Died at 11:09
    And he left behind
    A miserable wife.
    And at 11:14
    His heart came back on the screen.
    Thanks to that defib machine,
    He came back to life.

    Oh but those five minutes were heaven.
    A peace unlike he'd ever known.
    And as he came back to the living
    He thought "Please God, don't make me go
    Back to life."

    They told him what happened.
    How that green line had flattened.
    Oh, Harvey just started laughing.
    He said, "You're telling me I died."
    (You're telling me I died?)

    Oh, and he thought about that woman.
    How she treated him for years.
    All a-yellin' and a-screamin'
    And the nagging and the tears
    And the way it wasn't really all that bad
    When he lost his life.

    Because those five minutes were heaven.
    A peace unlike he'd ever known.
    And now he was back with the living
    And he found himself reaching for the phone.
    He called his lawyer, he called his priest
    Told 'em bout how they restarted his heart
    How his wedding vows were technically
    'Til death do us part.

    You'll probably judge me
    Then so be it.
    But you know boys, here's how I see it
