Oh lay me down in Forest Lawn in a silver casket

Put golden flowers over my head in a silver basket

Let the drum and bugle corp play taps while the cannons roar

And sixteen libertied employees sell souvenirs from the funeral store



I want to go simply when I go

They'll give me a simple funeral there I know

With a casket lined in fleece

And 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 and a military band there

Just put me in their care I'll find my comfort there

With sixteen planes and a last salute they'll drop across in a parachute



I want to 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 pale

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 it's hat to the mourners filing passed



I want to 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
