TBD on Ning

Is there a song that sums up what you want people to think about after you are gone?


Would you want it played at your funeral?


I don't know if there will be a funeral for me or not? But i'm thinking seriously about how I want it to be a party.


And here is the song that I want played.

After a Scot funeral is always a party, and being 3/4 Scot AND A 1/4 German. I learned this at an early age. :// " target="_blank"> Not the drunk part by the way, just the way he see's things.
Good one Funes. Did you listen to Snaggs folk music show tonight?
You have to be an early bird, to start the checkin. :) For SARA
Sara, Bet that will move the people who love you.
I guess I'll have to learn to tango. (:>)
Song Lyrics:
"What does Reincarnation mean?"
A cowpoke asked his friend.
His pal replied, "It happens when
Yer life has reached its end.
They comb yer hair, and warsh yer neck,
And clean yer fingernails,
And lay you in a padded box
Away from life's travails."

"The box and you goes in a hole,
That's been dug into the ground.
Reincarnation starts in when
Yore planted 'neath a mound.
Them clods melt down, just like yer box,
And you who is inside.
And then yore just beginnin' on
Yer transformation ride."

"In a while, the grass'll grow
Upon yer rendered mound.
Till some day on yer moldered grave
A lonely flower is found.
And say a hoss should wander by
And graze upon this flower
That once wuz you, but now's become
Yer vegetative bower."

"The posy that the hoss done ate
Up, with his other feed,
Makes bone, and fat, and muscle
Essential to the steed,
But some is left that he can't use
And so it passes through,
And finally lays upon the ground
This thing, that once wuz you."

"Then say, by chance, I wanders by
And sees this upon the ground,
And I ponders, and I wonders at,
This object that I found.
I thinks of reincarnation,
Of life and death, and such,
And come away concludin': 'Slim,
You ain't changed, all that much.'"

While at the Patrick AFB campground, there was a family of musicians there. Every evening they would have a jam session with other musicians in the campground. The 15 year old boy, who plays about 5 different musical instruments, recited this during one of the evening gatherings.
LoL! It's a crowd pleaser!
I like "I've got a problem" by Buddy Guy. Not that this has anything to do with my life, but its a funny song.
Either that or "Neon Meate Dream of a Octofish" by Captain Beefheart. That one sums up everything.
After I'm gone? I don't care what's played. I'm outta here. "Watermelon in Easter Hay" by Frank Zappa is quite beautiful. That's a great funeral type groove.
