The exit song at my Nan's funeral was Doing the Lambeth Walk - and as we left the crematorium, a few of her close family thought it would only be fitting if we sang along and did the "oi" part at the end of the chorus!

The hymn at my Grandad's funeral was Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory - and as a staunch Spurs fan, he would have appreciated us changing the chorus from Glory Glory Hallelujah to Glory Glory Tottenham Hotpur :roll:

Lovely story. (Hate Tottenham tho' :-D)

dmx- x gon' give it to ya :lol:

My fav as to be the one from Harry Enfield and Chums, when the two old g*ts turned up at a funeral wearing Hawain shirst and played 'feeling hot, hot,hot' by Buster Poindexter!! Classic

Dad wants 'I know its over' by Morrissey at his funeral because it says "Oh mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head" and he is a morrissey fan

My grandads funeral was held on the same day as the G20 stuff in london, and the vicar said (referring to it because my grandad was into politics and stuff) "people are surrounding london like vultures around a.....corpse...." and sort of realised towards the end what he was saying but then there was no turning back and he sort of slowed down like he was trying to think of an alternative word!

Me, my brother and my parents just burst out laughing, nobody else was really offended but they didnt laugh either. My grandad would of found it funny though. Can just imagine the vicar going home and saying "You'll never guess what I said today...." he looked like he just wanted the ground to swallow him up!

Not really apt though as the guy pressing the button is the fire starter and it would seem it was talking about him? When the song should really be coming from the deceased :thumbsup:
