"Tears in Heaven" by Eric Clapton

Yeah, I know it's a sad song about his son dying, but it's been overplayed, and when a song gets overplayed, the gears in my twisted mind start grinding. Besides, since Clapton moved on and stopped playing it in 2004, isn't it time for the rest of us to stop wallowing in the misery of this song?

Original lyrics:
Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven
Will it be the same
If I saw you in heaven
I must be strong, and carry on
Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven

Lewd lyrics:
Would you buy a round
If they sold beer in heaven?
Would you pound them down
If they sold beer in heaven?
If you're broke as hell, it's just as well
'Cause I know that they don't sell
Beer in heaven

What I love about this is that it references that classic drinking tune "In heaven there is no beer/That's why we drink it here."
