Some people die and go to Hell, where they

By Gale Acuff

probably belong, who am I to judge

God Almighty but one of those people,

ha ha, but at Sunday School they say all

folks have to line up in Heaven to get

their souls judged and only a few rate

staying though my teacher doesn't know how

many exactly that would be but lots

fewer than will burn and burn forever

in Hell so after Sunday School today

I told her that when I die I'll make it

as tough on God as He's made it on me

or maybe that's will have made it on me,

I can't seem to stop sinning any way.

I'll die half-and-half and that's just perfect.
