Slow Boat to Heaven

I’m on a slow boat to Heaven
Looks like it may be a long ride
Got a ticket and seat reservation
And an angel of love by my side.

No one can change your direction
When God drives the bus and the train
He’ll promise to be at the station
And to pilot your heavenly plane.

I have a blessed angel for company
From the day she walked into my life
She says that she’ll always be with me
And be a faithful companion and wife.

I can’t climb the stairway to Heaven
Cause my footsteps are short and grown old
I’m afraid it will take me forever
To walk streets that are “paved with gold.”

So I’m taking the slow boat to Heaven
I don’t mind if it is a long ride
The longer it takes me to get there
The more time I will spend with my bride.
