Away With Funeral Music

Rating: 3.1
AWAY with funeral music - set
The pipe to powerful lips -
The cup of life's for him that drinks
And not for him that sips.

The Cup of life for him who drinks....So much in these few lines. The Funeral music is like music of no other. It is not forgotten and brings another meaning to the song,
