When I die, I'm going someplace
That I have never been.
You can be sure I won't be back
If Heaven lets me in.
Don't know much about this place
Just what I've heard and read.
One of the requirements is
You've got to go there dead.
A couple of things I ask of you
Be you friend or be you kin.
Don't pack away my memories
As if I'd never been.
Don't be sad when you think of me
Or remember me with tears.
Just think about the funny things
We laughed at through the years.
It's ok if you want to miss me
But that's as far as it should go.
Just think about me now & then
And go on with the show.
So, this is just a note to say
Don't cry and don't you fret
I'm hanging in and going strong
You see, I AIN'T DEAD YET!
