Early this morning
I heard you knock upon my door
Early this morning
I heard you knock upon my door
I said, "Hello, Satan,
I believe it's time to go"

Me and the devil
We were walking side by side
Me and the devil
We were walking side by side
I'm gonna love your woman, Satan
'Til I'm satisfied

She said, "You may know your ways
But I've been dogged around"
"You may know your ways
But I can hear you come to dog me around"
Must be that evil spirit
Way deep down in the ground

You may bury my body
Down by the highwayside
You may bury my body
Down by the highwayside
That way my evil spirit
Can rise up, take a Greyhound bus and ride

Everyone's tryin' to get to the bar
The name of the bar, the bar is called Heaven
In Heaven the band plays our favorite song
They play it one more time they play it all night long

Oh! Heaven. It is a place
A place where nothing, nothing ever happens

And there is a party. Everyone is there.
Everybody gonna leave at exactly the same time.
Its hard to imagine that nothin' at all
Could be so exciting, could be this much fun.

Oh! Heaven. It is a place
A place where nothing, nothing ever happens

And when the kiss is over, we'll start again.
It won't feel any different. In fact it's exactly the same.
Its hard to imagine that nothin' at all
Could be so exciting, or this much fun

Oh! Heaven. It is a place
A place where nothing, nothing ever happens
Oh! Heaven. It is a place
A place where nothing, nothing ever happens
