Midnight Music - Hoppin' Funeral Procession

Reminds me a bit of the lyrics of St. James Infirmary:

Oh, when I die, bury me
In my high top Stetson hat;
Put a twenty-dollar gold piece on my watch chain
God'll know I died standin' pat.

I want six crap shooters for pall bearers.
Chorus girl to sing me a song.
Put a jazz band on my hearse wagon.
Raise Hell as I roll along.

Roll out your rubber tired carriage,
Roll out your old time hat.
Twelve men going to the graveyard
And eleven coming back.

A cool old Betty Boop cartoon on which Cab Calloway sings St. James Infirmary:
