I've been searching for this song for years and finally found it online. It was apparently recorded in 1965 but never put on an album. Here's where you can find the MP3:

Mr. Baker, the Undertaker
By Ray Stevens
Who hangs around the operating room?
(Mr. Baker, the undertaker)
Who never sends a card that says ‘get well soon?’
(Mr. Baker, the undertaker)
He wears a shiny black suit and a high silk hat
and people are dying to meet this cat
(Mr. Baker, the undertaker) oh yea

Now who do they call when the patient dies?
(Mr. Baker, the undertaker)
And who’s got a coffin for every size?
(Mr. Baker, the undertaker)
Well he rides around in a big black car
(Mr. Baker, the undertaker)
a-making more money than a movie star
(Mr. Baker, the undertaker) oh yea

Well he lives with an owl, his pet old hoot owl
all alone at the funeral home
And they spend their evenings indian wrestling
and listening by the telephone
And when they get a call, Mr Baker laughs and blinks and stretches and dances wall to wall and he says “owl the doctor blew it” and he says the docter done made another mistake
And the owl, that wise old owl, he blink his eyes and flaps his wings and flies around the room and he comes down and says Whoooo, Whooo Whooo - ooooo --ooooo -oooooo

(Mr. Baker, the undertaker) oh yeah
(Mr. Baker, the undertaker)
Who reads the obituaries every single day?
(Mr. Baker, the undertaker)
Who’s got plans to lay you away?
(Mr. Baker, the undertaker)
You better treat him nice if you see him around
(Mr. Baker, the undertaker)
because he really knows how to put a guy down
- And you never get up
(Mr. Baker, the undertaker)
He’s going to get you in the end
(Mr. Baker, the undertaker)
His customers don’t talk back to him
(Mr. Baker, the undertaker)
He’s only happy when business is dead
