“When I quit this mortal shore
And mosey round the world no more
Don’t weep, don’t sigh, don’t sob
I may have struck a better job.
Don’t go buy a large bouquet
For which you’ll find it hard to pay.
Don’t mope around and feel all blue
I may be better off than you.
Don’t tell folks I was a saint
Or any other thing I ain’t
If you have jam like that to spread
Please hand it out before I’m dead.
If you have roses, bless your soul
Just pin one on my buttonhole.
While I’m alive and well today
Don’t wait until I’ve gone away.”
