Jeff Bridges You Beautiful Bastard

So if we get reborn, if there’s an afterlife
And if we get to pick before the time arrives
I’d go for something new, you know I’d change my tune
A little levity, a little brevity, I wanna’ be The Dude

What happens when we die? A lot of people say
At the T.O.D. the soul flies away
I wonder what’s the scoop, and do we get to choose
So how’s my karma, and what the hell is dharma, I wanna’ be The Dude

Clearly I was sleeping in philosophy class
When all the kids were talkin’ ‘bout Immanuel Kant
But every time Lebowski got a network broadcast
All four of my eyes were pressed right up to the glass

I bet Buscemi’s chill, and Goodman knows the deal
You know beyond the grave they’re gonna’ keep it real
We’re in a world of pain, so when this life is through
I’m singing the Eagles, and bowling with Jesus, I wanna’ be The Dude

I’m out of my element, so just for the hell of it
Reincarnate me as The Dude

How about a White Russian? Hey, end of discussion
In my next life I wanna’ be The Dude
