lyrics

Let me tell you about a man who some time lost his way
He would go to the local bars and drink his cares away
He would stumble around the town he meant no ill will
But the towns people would shoot him looks, looks that could kill

He would sit the darkest corner all by himself
He would watch all the townspeople drink from the top shelf

and he'd say

Go on and laugh go on and play
Go on and have your way
While you waiting at those pearly gates
I won't have to wait

Every once in a great while he'd utter some words
but no one paid him much attention to his profound verse

and he'd say

Go on and laugh go on and play
Go on and have your way
While you waiting at those pearly gates
I won't have to wait

Let me tell you about a man who some time lost his way
He would go to the local bars and this is what he'd say
I've seen my share of sinners, I've seen my share of saint
They all ate off the same plate and treated me the same way

So..

Go on and laugh go on and play
Go on and have your way
While you waiting at those pearly gates
I won't have to wait
