Shoes and Socks

My body to the grave will go

Down in a wooden box

Laid to rest in comfort

Wearing shoes and socks.

But no matter how it goes

It's all the same to me

I don't intend to be around

When they bury it, you see.

For I shall be with Jesus

My spirit with the Lord,

My body will go to the grave

Stiff as an ironing board !

Many there may gather

Around my burial plot

Some will say, 'he's with the Lord'

Others, 'no he's not !'

Now it dosen't really matter

What other people say

For I shall be with Jesus

And come with Him that Day.

So I think it will be wise

To save those shoes and socks

Give them to the poor

And bury just the box !

2 Corinthians 5:4-9
