If You Wanna Go To Heaven: Nina and Frederik

If you wanna go to heaven you gotta believe
And it all depends on how you live
I aint gonna grieve my Lord no more
I aint gonna grieve my Lord no more

Oh, you can’t get to heaven on roller skates,
‘Cause you’d roll right by those pearly gates.
I aint gonna grieve my Lord no more
I aint gonna grieve my Lord no more

Oh you can’t get to heaven with powder and paint
Cos it makes you look like what you ain’t
I aint gonna grieve my Lord no more
I aint gonna grieve my Lord no more

Now you may get to go if you do no sin
To the place those saints go marching in
I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more.
I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more.

Oh you can’t get to heaven with the power of gold
Cos nothing up there is bought and sold
I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more.
I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more.

Oh you can’t get to heaven in a limousine,
‘Cause the Lord don’t sell no gasoline.
I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more.
I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more.

If you get there before I do
Just dig a hole and pull me through
I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more.
I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more.

  1. Versions with added verses about Playtex bras and old Ford cars come to mind…
