On top of the sky is a place where you go if you've done nothing wrong

         |Fadd9       (Eb)|D   Dsus4 D
If you've done nothing wrong

   |G                      |Fadd9              
And down in the ground is a place where you go 
         |Bb           Bb B|C
if you've been a bad boy

         |Bb           Bb B|C
If you've been a bad boy

[chorus]
            |G5          |Fadd9   |Db          |F5
Why can't we have eternal life and never die?

|Db         |F5
 Never die?

|F5 F5->G5 G5 G5->F5 |

In the place up above you grow feather wings and you flap round and round
With a harp singing hyms
And down in the ground you grow horns and a tail and you carry a fork
And moan and wail

[repeat chorus]
