I came in here, just to see his guilty face
He's been dead twenty years but I sort of miss the chase

They're just checkin'
They're just checkin'
Nothing hits so definite, hits so hard
and he's doing the Old Graveyard
We're running a check. That death wasn't fortnight astray

I'm just checkin'
I'm just checkin'
I've seen those widows pray for the hunt that was taken away
They pretend they've just popped by like they popped by yesterday

No one settles up around here, like the widowed or the late
But no one's bought a drink for those that death excludes
We're just thinkin'
I came in here, just to see his guilty face
He's been dead twenty years but I sort of miss the chase

They're just checkin'
They're just checkin'
Nothing hits so definite, hits so hard
and he's doing the Old Graveyard
We're running a check. That death wasn't fortnight astray

I'm just checkin'
I'm just checkin'
I've seen those widows pray for the hunt that was taken away
They pretend they've just popped by like they popped by yesterday

No one settles up around here, like the widowed or the late
But no one's bought a drink for those that death excludes
We're just thinkin'
