Days like this I feel as if I was right inside the pearly gates.
And Mary lyin' there as if she saw the pearly gates openin' before her eyes.
The pearly gates opened wide, I have no doubt, to receive him.
Just then the pearly gates swung to, and I could see them no more.
God must have sent him on this wild ride to reach the pearly gates before his time.
Shall we repine ...
