If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song 
Uh oh uh oh 

Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother
She'll know I'm safe with you when 
She stands under my colours, oh and
Life ain't always what you think it oughta be, no 
Ain't even grey, but she buries her baby
The sharp knife of a short life, 
Well, I've had just enough time

If I die young bury me in satin.
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song 

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

And I'll be wearing white when I come into your kingdom
I'm as green as the ring on my little cold finger
I've never known the lovin' of a man 
But it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand
There's a boy here in town says he'll love me forever
Who would have thought forever could be severed by

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

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

A penny for my thoughts, oh no I'll sell them for a dollar 
They're worth so much more after I'm a goner
And maybe then you'll hear the words I been singin' 
Funny when you're dead how people start listenin'

If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song 
Uh oh (uh oh)

The ballad of a dove 
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears, keep 'em in your pocket
Save 'em for a time when your really gonna need 'em oh

The sharp knife of a short life, 
Well I've had just enough time
So put on your best boys, and I'll wear my pearls
