        Sitting on a hard chair
        try to sit straight
        Sitting on a hard chair
        this moment won't wait
        Listening to the speakers
        they're talking about you
        Look at all the people
        all the people you knew

        Sitting with my back straight
        it becomes hard to hear
        Some people are crying
        it becomes hard to hear
        I don't think you'd have liked it
        you would have made a joke
        You would have made it easier
        you'd say, "Tomorrow I'm smoke"

        Sitting on a hard chair
        how far we have come
        Trying hard to listen
        to your friends who have come
        Some of them are famous
        and some are just like me
        Trying hard to listen
        trying hard to see

        Sitting on a hard chair
        it's over time to stand
        Some people are crying
        I turn to grab your hand
        It's your daughter saying thank you
        you, you would have made a joke
        "Isn't this something"
        you'd say, "Tomorrow I'm smoke"

        Sitting on a hard chair
        it's over time to stand
        Some people are crying
        I turn to grab your hand
        It's your daughter saying thank you
        you, you would have made a joke
        "Isn't this something"
        you'd say, "Tomorrow I'm smoke"
