Maid in Heaven

No one's sure how she got the job
Some say it was a train wreck
Others claim Old Scratch lost his queen
Either way, she keeps the place immaculately clean
She fluffs the clouds, sorts the saints,
and rearranges rainbows
She shines Big Daddy's shoes, waxes wings,
and polishes halos
She oils the hinges on the Pearly Gates,

[Hata Bildir]
