Who Sang M*A*S*H: Suicide Is Painless: Main Theme? The Countdown Orchestra and Singers

Release information
length: 3:33
composer: Johnny Mandel
lyricist: Mike Altman

Through Early morning fog I see

Visions of the things to be

The pains that are withheld for me

I realize and I can see


That Suicide is Painless

It brings on many changes

And I can take or leave it if I please

Try to find a way to make

All our little joys relate

Without that ever present hate

But now I know that it's too late

And (chorus)

The game of life is hard to play

I'm going to lose it anyway

The losing card I'll someday lay

So this is all I have to say

That (chorus)

The only way to win is cheat

And lay it down before I'm beat

And to another give a seat

For that's the only painless feat

'Cause (chorus)

The sword of time will pierce our skins

It doesn't hurt when it begins

But as it works it's way on in

The pain grow stronger watch it grin

For (chorus)

A brave man once requested me

To answer questions that are key

Is it to be or not to be

And I replied "Oh why ask me."

Cause (chorus)

And you can do the same thing if you please
