Text písně Forest Lawn

Oh, lay me down in Forest Lawn in a silver casket 
 With golden flowers over my head in a silver basket 
 The drum and bugle corp play taps while cannons roar 
 Sixteen liveried employees sell souvenirs from the funeral store 


 I wanna go simply when I go 
 They'll give me a simple funeral there I know 
 With the casket lined in fleece 
 And the fireworks spelling out "Rest in Peace" 
 So take me when I'm gone to Forest Lawn 


 Oh, lay me down in forest lawn they understand there 
 They have a heavenly choir in the military band there 
 Just put me in their care I'll find my comfort there 
 With sixteen planes in the last salute they'll drop a cross from a parachute 


 I wanna go simply when I go 
 They'll give me a simple funeral there I know 
 With a hundred strolling strings 
 And topless dancers with golden wings 
 Oh, take me when I'm gone to forest lawn 


 Oooh, come, come, come, come 
 Come to the church in the wild wood 
 Kindly leave a contribution in the pail 
 Be as simple and as trusting as a child would 
 And we'll sell you the church in the dale 


 To find a simple resting place is my desire 
 To lay me down with a smiling face comes a little bit higher 
 my likeness cast in brass will stand in plastic grass 
 While hidden weights and springs tip his hat to the mourners filing past 


 I wanna go simply when I go 
 They'll give me a simple funeral there I know 
 I'll lie beneath the sand 
 With piped-in tapes of Billy Graham 
 Oh, take me when I'm gone to forest lawn 


 Rock of ages cleft for me for a slightly higher fee 
 Oh, take me when I'm gone to Forest Lawn
