That's very very good thinking but not quite the answer I'm looking for. Keep thinking in that direction and just re-read the riddle.

Is what you say not a welcome guest at a funeral? How is what you say "a way to pay"? When we get what you are giving as answer it is hardly payment, a ward reward might be appropriate in that case, or gift, but not payment.

not really a welcome guest ever, unless you hated the deceased. and doesn't fit so well...

all lines are made to fit, all words have to make sense next to your answer

a really cool try though

A hint is to use as much of the riddle as possible

ex. the word "honestly" is not used just to help the rhythm of the rhyme

it can also means "those who want me honestly leave no room for jest" or in other words if not "honestly" then jest is ok. when is it not "honest"? when you lie, when you joke... so maybe we use this guest more often then we think. take a look at last lines now, would that help explain the "cheap", how is it also expensive?

why not at funeral?

tell me which way you are going, I am always happy to send hints. Also comment on the riddle, I am just starting to write them so it helps :)
