Some think a fancy funeral will be worth every cent
But every dime or nickel is money better spent
Better spent on groceries or covering the bills
Instead of little luxuries and unnecessary frills
Lovely yellow daffodils and lacy pillow fringe
Pretty little angels for everyone to see
Lily of the valley and long black limousines
It's three or four months' salaries just to pay for all those things
So don't but a fancy funeral, it's not worth it in the end
Goodbyes can still be beautiful without the money that you spend
There's no amount of riches that will bring back what you've lost
To satisfy your wishes, no way to justify the cost
