Surely one of the best funeral songs ever written was performed by the Crash Test Dummies:

At My Funeral
by Brad Roberts

I'm still young, but I know my days are numbered

1234567 and so on

But a time will come when these numbers have all ended

And all I've ever seen will be forgotten

Won't you come to my funeral when my days are done

Life's not long and so I hope when I am finally dead and gone

That you'll gather round when I am lowered into the ground
When my coffin is sealed and I'm safely 6 feet under

Perhaps my friends will see fit then to judge me

Oh when they pause to consider all my blunders

I hope they won't be too quick to begrudge me

If I should die before I wake up

I pray that the Lord my soul will take but

My body, my body - that's your job

Well I can't be sure where I'm headed after death

To heaven, hell, or beyond to that Great Vast

But if I can I would like to meet my Maker

There's one or two things I'd sure like to ask

Won't you come to my funeral when my days are done

Life's not long and so I hope when I am finally dead and gone

That you'll gather round when I am lowered into the ground
