My choice would have to be Impossible Love

mmm thats a difficult one .. I went to my cousins funeral a few months back .. she was such a happy go lucky person .. we were very similar although she was 17 years my senior .. but I was rather shocked at the families song choice .. such a dreary sad Elvis song .. to be honest .. it wasnt her at all :rolleyes: ., sooooooooo I'd like something that would reflect my personality and make people smile at my funeral .. so my choice would be something like the Ying Tong Song .. :grin:

ying tong , ying tong, ying tong, ying tong, ying tong tiddle I poooooe tiddle I poooooooooe :grin:
