Life of sin

Life of sin

It's really doubtful that I will die in bed
Most likely I will be shot through the head

I've spent my whole life wallowing in sin
It's a lead pipe cinch that I'd do it over again

I might even get to stand at the pearly gate
But somehow I think they will make me wait

St Peter will read from his sin tally book
Hopefully a few he might overlook

The reading would take most of a week
Getting into heaven looks pretty bleak

I imagine that I will burn in eternal hellfire
I'll regret not hearing the celestial choir

The Devil has always been my consort
All plans for heaven I'll have to abort
