Some think a fancy funeral
Be worth every cent
For every dime and nickel
Is money better spent

Better spent on groceries
Covering the bills
Instead of little luxuries
And unnecessary frills

Lovely yellow daffodils
And lacy filigree's
Pretty little angels
For everyone to see

Lilly of the valley
And long black limousines
It's three or four month's salary
Just to pay for all those things

So don't buy a fancy funeral
It's not worth it in the end
Goodbyes can still be beautiful
With all the money that you'll spend

There's no amount of riches
Bring back what you lost
To satisfy your wishes
You'll never justify the cost
