    "Suicide Is Painless" is a song written by Johnny Mandel (music) and Mike Altman (lyrics), which is best known for being featured in both the movie and TV series M*A*S*H.

    Here is a link where you can listen to all of the versions that were used throughout the seasons of M*A*S*H http://tushball.com/MASH.html The lyrics to the actual song are

    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.

    I 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...

    that suicide is painless

    it brings on many changes

    and I can take or leave it if I please

    The game of life is hard to play

    I'm gonna lose it anyway

    The losing card I'll someday lay

    so this is all I have to say.

    that suicide is painless

    it brings on many changes

    and I can take or leave it if I please

    The only way to win is cheat

    And lay it down before I'm beat

    and to another give my seat

    for that's the only painless feat.

    that suicide is painless

    it brings on many changes

    and I can take or leave it if I please

    The sword of time will pierce our skins

    It doesn't hurt when it begins

    But as it works its way on in

    The pain grows stronger...watch it grin, but...

    that suicide is painless

    it brings on many changes

    and I can take or leave it if I please

    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 suicide is painless

    it brings on many changes

    and I can take or leave it if I please.

    ...and you can do the same thing if you please.

    That song was only in the movie, not the TV show. There was a song a guy sang, but that wasn't it. It is all in the semantics of the question.

    Riddle me this

    riddle me that

    who messed up

    a question about M*A*S*H
