Church Lady

Updated on July 17, 2013

Church Lady is about age 75.

She thanks her Lord every day that she's still alive.

Church Lady, listen here, don't take no mess.

She wears a great big hat and a magnificent Sunday dress.

She's at the church house every single God blessed holy ghost filled day.

Church Lady, bless her heart, just cant see it no other way.

She's been a member there, if you don't believe her she don't care, she says since 1953.

Church Lady done crossed paths and shared laughs with everybody from Lucille Ball, Arsenio Hall, Willie Nelson, & Muhammad Ali.

Church Lady makes a scene before service can even begin.

Shouting, "hallelujah", "glory", "Thank you Jesus", over and over and over again.

After church she makes her way home to rest her tired back, swollen ankles, and those old knees that creak.

Between Bengay and Epsom Salt, you know Church Lady will be on the front row next week.
