lyrics

Should I be mourning this morning?
Am I awful for not feeling sad?
I know that he died
with a smile on his face,
he was happy with all that he had
he was happy with all that he had

Oooh, ooh is what the choir will sing
but they'll all be wondering
why he's smiling so wide
through the formaldehyde?

Steve was an unhappy man in his 20's
he didn't have much to live for
but he wanted to know,
what makes happiness grow
and so he went out to explore
and so he went out to explore

Oooh, ooh is what the choir will sing
(it's a funeral thing)

We don't know what he discovered,
but he came home a different man,
with an absolute glow,
like a fire in the snow
with a smile as big as a canoe

ooh is what the choir will sing
but they'll all be wondering
why he's smiling so wide
through the formaldehyde?

I won't wear black to his funeral
because it just wouldn't be right
If love was what filled you,
and happiness killed you
then why would you put up a fight?
why would you put up a fight?

Oooh, ooh is what the choir will sing
(it's a funeral thing)
it's a funeral thing.
