Get Rid Of The Advertisements

And The Music?
 
I wouldn't be seen dead anywhere
laid out in black and white.
Black is so depressing
and I look so fat in white.
I've ordered a shroud in scarlet,
tasteful and very plain
but I'm planning to add a golden trim
(please, don't consider me vain).

I feel it's a special occasion
and I want to look my best.
You only get one funeral...
do you think I'll pass the test?
I've arranged a treat for the service;
when the casket passes by,
a plastic hand will be waving,
and the music?
'Wish Me Luck
As You Wave Me Goodbye!'
