Lyrics

Santana:
If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
Uh oh, uh oh

Lord, make me a rainbow
I'll shine down on my mother
She'll know I'm safe with you
When she stands under my colors, oh
And life ain't always what you think it oughta be, no
Ain't even grey but she buries her baby

The sharp knife of a short life
Well, I've had just enough time

If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

The sharp knife of a short life
Well, I've had just enough time

Santana (New Directions):
And I'll be wearing white when I come into your kingdom (Hey, hey)
I'm as green as the ring on my little cold finger (Hey, hey)
I've never known the lovin' of a man (Hey, hey)
But it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand (Hey, hey)
There's a boy here in town, says he'll love me forever (Hey, hey)
Who would have thought forever could be severed by (Hey, hey)

Santana (with New Directions):
(The sharp knife of a short life)
Well, I've had just enough (time)

Ooh, yeah
Ooh, whoa

So put on your best boys
And I'll wear my pearls
What I never did is done

A penny for my thoughts, oh no
I'll sell them for a dollar
They're worth so much more after I'm a goner
And maybe then you'll hear the words I been singin'
Funny when you're dead how people start listenin'

Oh, if I die young

Santana with New Directions:
Bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

Santana (New Directions):
Uh oh (uh oh)
The ballad of a dove (uh oh)
Go with peace and love

Santana (with New Directions):
(Gather up your tears)
Keep 'em in your pocket
Save 'em for a time
When you're really gonna need 'em, oh

(The sharp knife of a short life)
Well, I've had just enough (time)

So put on your best boys
And I'll wear my pearls
