Forest Lawn - John Denver (約翰·丹佛)

Oh lay me down in Forest Lawn in a silver casket

 

With golden flowers over my head in a silver basket

 

Let the drum and bugle corp play taps while cannons roar

 

While 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 a casket lined in fleece and the fireworks spelling out "Rest in Peace"

Oh 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 a last salute they'll drop a cross in 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

 

Oh 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 tips it's 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
