Live Life Well And Long by Charles Wile

And finally when on your own

Don't think that you are all alone

But sing out loud so I can hear

For I lived well

And I lived long

And none shall soon forget my song

And all I wish

From high above

Is you live well and long, my love

Don't reminisce and then feel sad

But raise your glass up high and toast

The joys of life you love the most

When all are shaking hands by my grave

Don't ask the children to behave

Let them run free and shout out loud

The living joy of which I'm proud

When I am lying six feet deep

Don't sadly hang your head and weep

But let my final epitaph

Be tales of life that make you laugh

When you are talking at my wake

Don't chat politely serving cake

Instead buy champagne by the crate

Link arms with friends, dance, celebrate

When people stop and say 'too bad'.
