For days he says he can remember
And through the town the pallbearers sing old songs
Of a beautiful purple mountain

verse 2
May I now present you the speaker,
"Friends he was a man of men, a man of gold:
He had a how do you say, ethical like sense"
That's when the Prezident started to giggle
(same as first verse)

And the children gave the blessing
Though the service weren't half done
Each of them sued the other one
For the Last great American

verse 3
Merry reaches up, we bow our heads
He pulls the lid on down and his stone is read
Here lies our Merry
The man with the heart so spent
That in this day and age
Is sick of living
(same as first verse)

And judges argue letters
Fabric comes undone
For every daughter every son
Of the Last great American:
