I see you from afar
And the sun glimmers in your eyes
As they stare at my coffin
And your untrue tears form
To make a good impression

Leave no flowers to be buried with me
You never were thoughtful before
In time you will forget I even existed
I'm sure it won't be long

Just think of the expense of me
No longer will you have it
Gone, gone, say good riddance
For I believe you've wanted to

Now you won't have to be ashamed
Of me or what I've done
And if you wish to leave no marking
Of where I've been lain
That will be one less reminder of me

Don't ever return to this plot
Let me have my own peace
Death has given me happiness
