"Give Me the Flowers While I'm Living" as written by Elvin Bigger, Louise Certain and Gladys Stacey Flatt....
In this world today while we are livin'
Some folks say the worst of us they can
But when we are dead and in our casket
They always slip some lilies in our hands

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
Please don't send them when I'm gone

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

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

No don't try to slip some lilies in my hand
