I wish, like me, all kept the Golden Rule.
The drivers up ahead are much too slow,
And if I get the chance, I’ll tell them so.
It’s awful hard to find a parking place.
When members don't have one, that's a disgrace.
I bet there are a bunch of visitors.
Our church lets anyone come through its doors.
The lesson for today is truly boring;
I’d sleep if I were not afraid of snoring.
The teacher’s droning on and on and on;
It’s hard for me to stifle every yawn.
And now in church there’s someone in our spot,
Not caring if we get a seat or not.
We’ll have to find one somewhere else, I guess,
Just one more thing to put me under stress.
Oh no! Here comes another worship song;
The music of today’s completely wrong.
When I was young, we sang with dignity.
With drums, that’s not a possibility.
The preacher’s sermon’s going way too late.
For lunch we’ll have to stand in line and wait.
It’s not like me to be the one to fuss,
But unchurched people get in front of us.
It’s sad that many folks are not like me,
For I can say with deep humility:
Whatever should turn out to be my lot,
I’ve learned the way to be content…or not.
