"Life Hereafter" is a song featured in the 2021 Disney+ television special, Muppets Haunted Mansion. It is sung by the Ghost Host (played by Will Arnett) and various Muppets including a ghost version of Kermit the Frog.

It is a style parody of "Be Our Guest", with earlier script drafts for the movie originally calling for the number to be a much more direct parody called "Be Our Ghost".[1]


Ghost Host (spoken):
We now invite you to sit back and relax, as our 999 residents proudly present... your funeral.

Welcome to the life hereafter
Sleepless nights, eternal laughter
Buy the farm, push up some daisies

Muppet Monsters:
Then get down with us creepy crazies

Clean Gene (spoken):
Hi, wanna come play with me?

Ghost Host:
Frights du jour

And daily nightmares

Mummy and Duddy:
Ghoulish scares to raise your neck hairs

Ghost Host:
If you think it's too macabre,
Follow the floating candelabra

Rizzo the Rat:
But he ain't French and he can't croon

We did that in a beastly cartoon

Ghost Host (spoken):
She was a beauty

Ghost Host:
We'll never rest, we'll never cease
'Till you finally rest in peace

You can fly and you can float

Or you can scream just like a goat

Screaming Goat:

But to grant your endless wishes

First, you must sleep down with the fishes

Pepe (spoken):
Hey! Hold on, I'm not sleepy! (screams)

Rain or snow

Ghost Host:
Lightning or thunder

The party is down here six feet under

Trick or treat!

Take a smell of my feet

Big Mean Carl:
And gimme something good to eat

Ghost Host:
You're all alone, but don't be scared
We've got your wake all pre-prepared

Howard (spoken):
Hi, I'm serving soup. It's a cream mock tortoise and a yummy red that pairs with rigor mortis. (laughs)

Statler (spoken):
It's all so dopey. I'm complaining.

Waldorf (spoken):
At least it's almost entertaining.

Statler and Waldorf:
Waldorf (spoken)
Statler (spoken):
Huh? What the--

Announcer (spoken):
Your attention, please. Restless spirits have halted our progress. Please remain seated in your doom buggy, and we will continue our tour momentarily.

Statler (spoken):
Oh, no. The only thing worse than being stuck in here with you is being stuck in here with them!

Statler and Waldorf:

We tell jokes

I do tricks

Crazy Harry:
With my deadly candlesticks

Bobo (spoken):

Come on now and lift your glass

Ghost Host:
Filled with poison sassafras

The Swedish Chef:
(Speaking mock-Swedish)

Joe from Legal:
Sign your will, deed, and trust
'Cause it's time to bite the dust

Cash in your chips, we're not joking
Now's the time you should be croaking
You're so great, none can compare
No one has your savoir faire

Ghost Host:
It's time to turn your whole life story
Into a memento mori

Corpse by corpse and one by one
Until you shout, "My life is done"

So join us in this life hereafter

Sleepless nights, eternal laughter
Sleepless nights, eternal laughter
Sleepless nights, eternal laughter
Sleepless nights, eternal laughter

And now the greatest act of all

Ghost Host:
It's Gonzo's final curtain call

From the basement to the rafters
Join us in the great hereafter
You'll be great forever after

Muppet Monsters:
In our monstrous life hereafter

For our afterparty afterlife

Rowlf (spoken):
Rest. In. Peace.

All (spoken):
