LIFE IS LIKE A GROCERY COUPON
by Greg Trafidlo & Ron Sowell Chorus: “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 downMany choices we must makeWill it be paper or plastic?Microwave or oven bake?Tasty treats and sweet temptationsWe must pass along the wayBut we won’t need paper productsJust beyond that Pearly Gate Repeat ChorusSome say you can’t take it with youOthers say of course you canLet the angels bag your groceriesAnd guide you to that Promised LandWhen you fill your final basketYou must be free of fear and doubt‘Fore you face that heavenly scannerWhen it’s time for checking out Bridge:Take heed Oh my Brothers. ‘The line that reads “Express”Is only there for others with twenty sins or less Repeat chorus
