LIFE IS LIKE A GROCERY COUPON
by Greg Trafidlo & Ron Sowell
“Life is like a grocery coupon
That you clip from Sunday’s flyer
Just have faith and it will save you
If it‘s redeemed ‘fore you expire”
Many aisles we must walk down
Many choices we must make
Will it be paper or plastic?
Microwave or oven bake?
Tasty treats and sweet temptations
We must pass along the way
But we won’t need paper products
Just beyond that Pearly Gate
Some say you can’t take it with yo
uOthers say of course you can
Let the angels bag your groceries
And guide you to that Promised Land
When you fill your final basket
You must be free of fear and doubt
‘Fore you face that heavenly scanner
When it’s time for checking out
Take heed Oh my Brothers.
‘The line that reads “Express”
Is only there for others with twenty sins or less
