Thread Name: Songs about retirement / for a retirement party
Subject: RE: Searching For Retirement Songs
Or how about "BRING FLOWERS" by Malvina Reynolds? (didn't see it in DT). The chorus is:

Bring flowers, bring flowers,
Not lilies, but roses in showers,
And lilacs and daisies and daffodils sweet
For the guy who is still on his feet!

It's about praising somebody before the funeral instead of during it; sounds strange, putting it like that, but I think it'd work.
