(Thanks Erik Olsen for the info!)

The song also works without the funeral speech! :-)

        Archie Pakeman Samuell was an innocent boy
        it's a sad day when murder is commited in the name of justice
        this act tries the forbearance of good Christian man
        we commend this child's body to the ground
        his soul belongs
