    Lyrics

    I used to be a sinner, used to have my cake and eat it
    They warned me of my fate, but I was quite prepared to meet it
    You'll go to Hell they smiled at me
    And told me of the roaring fires
    But I was happy living wild
    And fueling my own desires
    I was a wild man
    Drinking, smoking and messing around with women
    Lots of women
    No, not swimming, women

    I wanna go to Heaven
    The place to be is right up there
    I wanna go to Heaven
    It's gonna be good so I won't despair

    I decided to reform and pray
    Beg mercy for my soul
    I prayed in church
    Threw away my bad habits
    Prayed out of church
    Adopted an entirely different role
    I gave my money to the poor until I was poor
    But at least I ensured that I would go up there
    Instead of down below to the Inferno
    Where the evil flames of desire
    Burned higher and higher and higher

    I'm gonna go to Heaven
    Paid my dues so I'm getting in
    I'm gonna go to Heaven
    It's looking good if I abstain from sin

    I knocked on the pearly gates
    Neatly side-stepping the long queue
    Waved hi to St. Peter
    Who checked my card and let me through
    I smiled, threw my hands in the air
    Laughed and got arrested
    They said hey man, you're in the wrong place
    Your behaviour is a disgrace
    Here we pray every hour, on the hour
    Read extracts from the Bible and look solemn'
    What, says I, no party?
    No party?
    Let me out

    Let me out of Heaven
    I got it wrong, no I can't stay here
    No laughing in Heaven
    Let me out, I just can't stay here

    Well I ran around in the state of shock and panic
    This wan't what I expected
    Here was what looked like a bunch of manic depressives
    Can I get a transfer, I screamed
    But no, once you're in Heaven, you're here for good
    The good of your soul, but that's no good for me
    If you want to go to Hell you've really got to be bad
    Okay, okay, I'll be bad
    Too late
    What do you mean too late
    Too late
    No
    In the meantime

    Let me out of Heaven
    I've got it wrong, no I can't stay here
    No laughing in Heaven
    Oh God, it's awful here
    Going crazy in Heaven
    Take me out and let me go to hell
    No laughing in Heaven
    Don't laugh, this place is Hell
