MASH/Song from a tv show episode
In one of the episodes a soldier is angry about something, I think a dear John letter. He picks up a guitar and sings about how people are going to be sorry when he's dead. I think part of the song he says something like -"You're going to be sorry when I die and I'm going to laugh, I'm going to chuckle, guffaw,chortle, chortle, chortle, etc."-
I remember it as a hilarious scene, everything about it was outrageous; the voice, the delivery, the lyrics. I hope you can tell me how I can find it.
The episode you are referring to is Season 3's, "There is Nothing Like A Nurse." Indeed, the song you are looking for is called, "When I Die," written and performed by Louden Wainwright III.
I believe the song is sung at the end of the episode when the nurses return. The lyrics are available on the Internet simply by searching for MASH lyrics.
