New York Mining Disaster 1941
Bee Gees Lyrics


In the event of something happening to me,
There is something I would like you all to see.
It's just a photograph of someone that I knew.

Have you seen my wife, Mr. Jones?
Do you know what it's like on the outside?
Don't go talking too loud, you'll cause a landslide, Mr. Jones.

I keep straining my ears to hear a sound.
Maybe someone is digging underground,
Or have they given up and all gone home to bed,
Thinking those who once existed must be dead.

Have you seen my wife, Mr. Jones?
Do you know what it's like on the outside?
Don't go talking too loud, you'll cause a landslide, Mr. Jones.

In the event of something happening to me,
There is something I would like you all to see.
It's just a photograph of someone that I knew.

Have you seen my wife, Mr. Jones?
Do you know what it's like on the outside?
Don't go talking too loud, you'll cause a landslide, Mr. Jones.

I can't believe this is the same Bee Gees that did Stayin Alive

Cynthia Moraes

And they have amazing songs after that too: Ordinary Lives, Secret Love, One, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Paying the Price of Love, Alone, This is Where I Came In, etc.

I listen to the Bee Gees as much now as I did when I was 12yo--best year of my life; I wrote to RSO Records/Robert Stigwood that year about my deep love of their music, and he sent me dozens of old-fashioned albums, a hand-written note, and 8 complimentary tickets to an upcoming Bee Gees concert in my state in return. Me & my friends had the time of our lives at that concert in '79--and it was so cool to be paged out of class at that age for a call from a "Mr. Stigwood in New York." He actually called my home phone number while I was in school, and my mom gave him the school's phone number. He was/is a class act & a kind gentleman; and my love for the Bee Gees has never waned over the years. I was wactually in the hospital when I saw on the news that Maurice had died, and kept wishing it was all just a bad dream. I miss Maurice & Robin terribly, they surely passed away far too young. I still imagine hearing the 3 of them sing together today, how brilliant that would be! The Bee Gees remain my all-time fave band, they are a legendary group for all-time--and the memories their music evokes are priceless. I love their older music equally as much as the disco era--it is all timeless. God Bless you, Sir Barry & may you rest in peace together Maurice, Robin & Andy--still harmonizing together in the Heavens above and bringing immense joy to our lives for decades to come <3
