Lyrics: Joe Glazer.
Tune: Joe Glazer.


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.
