Lucinda Williams Lyrics

"Fancy Funeral" lyrics

Some think a fancy funeral
Will be worth every cent
For every dime and nickel
Is money better spent
Better spent on groceries
Covering the bills
Instead of little luxuries
Unnecessary frills
Lovely yellow daffodils
And lacey filigree's
Pretty little angels
For everyone to see
Lilly of the valley
Long black limousenes
Three or four months 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
Theres no amount of riches
Bring back what you lost
To satisfy your wishes
You'll never justify the cost
