Many will be shocked to find, When the Day of Judgment nears
That there's a special place in heaven, Set aside for volunteers.
Furnished with big recliners, Satin couches and footstools,
Where there's no committee chairman, No group leaders or car pools,
No eager team that needs a coach, No bazaar and no bake sale.
There will be nothing to staple, Not one thing to fold or mail
Telephone lists will be outlawed, But a finger snap will bring
Cool drinks and gourmet dinners, And rare treats fit for a king.
You ask, who'll serve these privileged few, And work for all they're worth?
Why, all those who reaped the benefits, And not once volunteered on earth.
