Give Me Flowers My While I’m Living

print

In this world today while we’re living
Some folks say the worst of us they can
But when we are dead and in our caskets
They always slip some lilies in our hand

    Won’t you give me my flowers while I’m living
    And let me enjoy them while I can
    Pleae don’t wait till I’m ready to be buried
    And then slip some lilies in my hand

In this world is where we need our flowers
A kind word to help us get along
If you can’t give me flowers while I’m living
Then please don’t throw them when I’m gone
