Drinkin’ Margaritas with the Lord

Lyrics & Music by George Douglas Lee © Copyright 2008, G. D. Lee

 

 

There’s trouble in the garden, paradise went down the tubes

Everything’s a crisis, ain’t nothing but bad news

Floods and global warming, you’d think the end is near

Can’t afford to eat or drive, what am I doing here?

 

I’d like to believe that I could pack my soul and leave

And be drinking margaritas with the Lord

 

Drinking margaritas with the Lord, yeah

It’s always happy hour in Heaven’s bar

Playin’ poker with the angels high above this dirty world

And drinking margaritas with the Lord

 

I went begging at the bank, just to fill up my gas tank

Then give my meager paycheck to the grocery store

I’m treading water, stayin’ poor, spending less and working more,

I’m ready to retire, can’t take no more!

 

The way things are today, if I could have my way

I’d be drinking margaritas with the Lord

 

Drinking margaritas with the Lord 

It’s always happy hour in Heaven’s bar

Playin’ poker with the angels high above this dirty world 

Drinking margaritas with the Lord 

 

I heard a voice, clear and thin, Like the e string on a violin 

The voice said to me, hey, what’s it gonna be? 

You gonna stay down there, or come up here with me? 

 

I’m gonna check out of the rat race, take a break at Heaven’s bar 

The golden arch at Beverly Drive and Wilshire Boulevard

Your tab runs for eternity, you’re at peace and never bored

Drinking margaritas with the Lord

 

Drinking margaritas with the Lord

It’s always happy hour at Heaven’s Bar

Playin’ poker with the angels high above this dirty world 

And drinking margaritas with the Lord

 

Drinking margaritas with the Lord (Repeat…)

It’s always happy hour at Heaven’s Bar

Playin’ poker with the angels high above this dirty world 

And drinking margaritas with the Lord
