Don't Make Me A Hero When I'm Gone


I went to a funeral today.
Someone who obviously knew the family well
Stood to 'say a few words'.

Well, the lady in the coffin was hardly recognisable!
She'd been so unbelievably good at everything
It's a wonder anyone liked her at all.

So don't make me a hero when I'm gone.

There'll be good things about me to miss
And some not so good, which you'll be better off without
So keep things in balance.

Whatever you do, have a laugh.
I've loved tears of laughter rolling down my cheeks
Tummy aching with hilarity
Always made me feel better about things.

So have a good laugh
It'll do you good -
And don't make me a hero when I'm gone.
