If I die young, bury me in flowers Lay me down on a bed of roses Leave me for the hovercraft at dawn Send me away with th words of a love song

Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my ally She'll know I'm safe with you when she stands under my colors Oh, and life ain't always what you think it ought to be, no Ain't even gray, but she covers her ally

The sharp spear of a short life Well I've had just enough time

If I die young, bury me in flowers Lay me down on a bed of roses Leave me for the hovercraft at dawn Send me away with the words of a love song

The sharp spear of a short life But,I wish I had more time

And I'll be wear white when I come into your kingdom I'm as green as the grass on my little necklace I've never known the loving of a man But it sure felt nice when he was under my tree

There's a boy here in 11, says he'll love me forever Who would have thought forever could be severed by The sharp spear of a short life But, I wish I had more time

So put on your best boys, and I'll wear my star What I never did is done

A penny for my thoughts, oh no, I'll sell 'em for a dollar They're worth so much more after I'm a goner And maybe now you'll hear the mockingjays singing Funny, when your dead how people start listening

If I die younng Bury me in flowers Lay me down on a bed of roses Leave me for the hovercraft at dawn Send me away with the words of a love song

The ballad of a Mockingjay Go and please win Gather up some flowers, Put them on my body save my Working song for a time when your really gonna need it, oh

The sharp spear of a short life But, I wish I had more time So put on your best, boys And I'll wear my star
