Liner Notes: 

A young friend was telling me that he will be going to several destination weddings in the coming year. I said I only get invited to destination funerals now--then I thought, hey, that's a great song prompt. So here it is.

If anyone is interested in engineering a better mix and sound, I'm open to that.
I hope you have as much fun listening as I had writing this.

Lyrics: 

DADDY WANTS A DESTINATION FUNERAL
© Mark Greenberg August 24, 2019

Daddy was saying when it comes to the end
He wants one last party for family and friends
We all gotta go, it’s irrefutable
And Daddy wants a destination funeral

We’ll meet in Las Vegas, it’s so doable
And all get together for the destination funeral
We’ll book a block of rooms at the MGM Grand
Cause that’s the one casino where Uncle Joe is banned

Each room comes with a guest goodie bag
As a parting gift from dear old Dad
You’ll get buffet tickets and a stack of chips
And we’ll remember Daddy over peel-and-eat shrimp

There’ll be a team of pretty strippers to take him to the grave
Cause when Daddy’s around strippers he gets carried away
Then we’ll gather in the lounge for one last time
And tip the bar band one-hundred to play Auld Lang Syne
Wasted in Las Vegas, it’s so suitable
Daddy wants a destination funeral

The title cracked me up! The next new trend! HA! Living in Las Vegas now (from California), I thought I dIdn’t want my life to end here, but maybe it’s not that bad. Smile

I appreciate the old-people humor, gonna hit more of these in years to come. Great concept, love the rhymes and all the campy details.
