I Wanna Go to Heaven

If the golden streets were stainless steel
If the gates of pearl had a plastic feel
If the marriage supper was a Happy Meal,
I’d still want to go there

If the river of life was a babbling brook,
If the great white throne had a dingy look
If the book of life was a comic book
I’d still want to go there

I want to go to heaven
I want to go to heaven
Even if it wasn’t all the bible said it will be
I’d still want to go to heaven
I want to go to heaven
I want to go to heaven, if Jesus is all I ever see

If the angel’s horn was an old kazoo
If the city foursquare was a 2 by 2
If my mansion was a room with a terrible view
I’d still want to go there

The millenial reign was a couple of weeks,
If the jasper walls were a shade of pink
If the only music ever heard was N Sync
I’d still want to go there

I want to go to heaven
I want to go to heaven
Even if it wasn’t all the bible said it will be
I’d still want to go to heaven
I want to go to heaven
I want to go to heaven, if Jesus is all I ever see

I want to go to heaven
I want to go to heaven
Even if it wasn’t all the bible said it will be
Lord, I want to go to heaven
I want to go to heaven
I want to go to heaven, if Jesus is all I ever see

I want to go to heaven, if Jesus is all I see
