"The Mill Was Made of Marble" (karaoke)

"The Mill Was Made of Marble" (sheet music)


I dreamed that I had died

And gone to my reward:

A job in heaven's textile plant

On a golden boulevard.

 

The mill was made of marble;

The machines were made out of gold;

And nobody ever got tired;

And nobody ever got old.

 

The mill was built in a garden;

No dust or lint could be found;

The air was so fresh and so fragrant

With flowers and trees all around.

 

The mill was made of marble;

The machines were made out of gold;

And nobody ever got tired;

And nobody ever got old.

 

It was quiet and peaceful in heaven;

There was no clatter or boom;

You could hear the most beautiful music,

As you worked at the spindle and loom.

 

The mill was made of marble;

The machines were made out of gold;

And nobody ever got tired;

And nobody ever got old.

 

There was no unemployment in heaven;

We worked steady all through the year;

We always had food for the children;

We never were haunted by fear.

 

The mill was made of marble;

The machines were made out of gold;

And nobody ever got tired;

And nobody ever got old.

 

When I woke from this dream about heaven,

I wondered if some day there'd be

A mill like that one down below here on earth

For workers like you and like me.

 

The mill was made of marble;

The machines were made out of gold;

And nobody ever got tired;

And nobody ever got old.
