Waiting at the Gate

Waiting at the Gate

I explained to St. Peter
I’d rather stay here
Just outside the Pearly Gate.
I won’t be a nuisance,
I won’t even bark,
I’ll be very patient and wait.

I’ll be right here chewing
A celestial bone
No matter how long you may be.
‘Cause I’d miss you too much,
If I went in alone–
It wouldn’t be heaven for me.
