Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Preacher told me last Sunday morning
Son, you better start living right
You need to quit the women and whiskey
And carrying on all night
Verse 2
Don't you wanna hear him call your name
When you're standing at the pearly gates
I told the preacher, "Yes I do"
But I hope they don't call today
I ain't ready
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
Said preacher maybe you didn't see me
Throw an extra twenty in the plate
There's one for everything I did last night
And one to get me through today
Here's a ten to help you remember
Next time you got the good Lord's ear
Say I'm coming but there ain't no hurry
I'm having fun down here
Don't you know that
Verse 5
Everybody wants to go to heaven
Get their wings and fly around
Everybody want to go to heaven
But nobody want to go now
Verse 6
Someday I want to see those streets of gold in my halo
But I wouldn't mind waiting at least a hundred years or so
Verse 7
Everybody wanna go to heaven
It beats the other place there ain't no doubt
Everybody wanna go to heaven
But nobody wanna go now
Verse 8
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
