Back to Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven lyrics

Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven

Preacher told me last Sunday mornin
Son, you better start livin right
You need to quit the women and whiskey
And carrying on all night

Dont you wanna hear him call your name
When youre standin at the pearly gates?
I told the preacher, Yes I do
But I hope they dont call today
I aint ready"

Everybody wants to go to heaven
Have a mansion high above the clouds
Everybody want to go to heaven
But nobody want to go now

I said, "Preacher maybe you didnt see me
Throw an extra twenty in the plate
Theres one for everything I did last night
And one to get me through today"

"Heres a ten to help you remember
Next time you got the good Lords ear
Say Im comin but there aint no hurry
Im havin fun down here"
Dont you know that

Everybody wants to go to heaven
Get their wings and fly around
Everybody want to go to heaven
But nobody want to go now

Someday I want to see those
Streets of gold in my halo
But I wouldnt mind waiting at least
A hundred years or so

Everybody wanna go to heaven
It beats the other place there aint no doubt
Everybody wanna go to heaven
But nobody wanna go now

Everybody wanna go to heaven
Hallelujah, let me hear you shout
Everybody wanna go to heaven
But nobody wanna go now
I think I speak for the crowd
Nobody want to go now
