"Do You Think That They'll Let Me In Heaven?" by Pat

Do you think that they’ll let me in heaven,
After what I did to that priest?
With those boyish looks and blonde curls,
And my sycophantic “Yes, Father’s”.
Sure, the man didn’t have a chance, or a choice.
No, I don’t think that they’ll let me in heaven,
After I went and corrupted that priest.

Do you think that they’ll let me in heaven,
After what I did to the church?
The rock that Jesus founded,
That binds heaven from Earth.
And condones the loosened cassock.
No, I don’t think they’ll let me in heaven,
After I went and reported the church.

Do you think that they’ll let me in heaven,
After abusing ‘cause I was abused?
My ex, my kids, my family.
My friends, my community, my body.
It was all that priests fault, wasn’t it, Pat?
No, I don’t think they’ll let me in heaven,
After I went and blamed someone else.

Do you think that they’ll let me in heaven,
After feltching the churches coffers?
Inadequate payment for a night-time of horrors.
For what profit a man…
Final payment for the final part of my soul.
No, I don’t think they’ll let me in heaven,
After I went and sought compensation.

Do you think that they’ll let me in heaven?
No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No Way, No!
If only it wasn’t so….
