"Keg on My Coffin" as written by and Chris Trapper....
Put the keg on my coffin
And think of me every so often
Have a losers day parade for all my friends
Drink up life like a river
'Til the pizza man delivers
And smile and know I loved you 'til the end

Here's what you do when my time comes to pass
Charlie told me through the reflection in his glass
Don't waste time praying
'Cause I'm never coming back
Just throw a party in my name


Here's what to write on the stone over my grave
His friends were earned and not a penny saved
Don't waste time crying
'Cause you too are on your way
To meet me at the pawn shop in the sky

    General Commenti think this is a very sweet song, telling loved ones just to go on with life as he would want them to. dont mourn his loss, but celebrate his life.

    my dad said he wants us to play this at his funeral. kinda sad/weird thing to say.

    General CommentAccording to their live CD, this song is about a conversation Chris Trapper (the lead singer) had with his Uncle Charlie when he was young.

    I love this song, because I agree with the premise. It's ironic that so many people believe in some sort of afterlife, yet mourn and weep at funerals. Shouldn't it be a happy occasion? Well, until then, Carpe Diem. "you too are on your way to meet me at the pawn shop in the sky..."
