"Sheep Go To Heaven" as written by and John Mccrea....
I'm not feeling alright today
I'm not feeling that great
I'm not catching on fire today
Love has started to fade
I'm not going to smile today
I'm not gonna laugh
You're out living it up today
I've got dues to pay

And the gravedigger puts on the forceps
The stonemason does all the work
The barber can give you a haircut
The carpenter can take you out to lunch

Now I just want to play on my panpipes
I just want to drink me some wine
As soon as you're born you start dyin'
So you might as well have a good time

Sheep go to heaven
Goats go to hell
Sheep go to heaven
Goats...go to hell

I don't wanna go to Sunset Strip
I don't wanna feel the emptiness
Old marquees with stupid band names
I don't wanna go to Sunset Strip

I don't wanna go to Sunset Strip
I don't wanna feel the emptiness
Old marquees with stupid band names
I don't wanna go to Sunset Strip

And the gravedigger puts on the forceps
The stonemason does all the work
The barber can give you a haircut
The carpenter can take you out to lunch

Now but I just want to play on my panpipes
I just want to drink me some wine
As soon as you're born you start dyin'
So you might as well have a good time

Sheep go to heaven
Goats go to hell
Sheep go to heaven
Goats...go to hell

Sheep go to heaven
Goats go to hell
Sheep go to heaven
Goats...go to hell

Sheep go to heaven
Goats go to hell
Sheep go to heaven
Goats...go to hell

    Song MeaningMatthew 25:31-34, 41 (King James Version)
    32And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

    33And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

    34Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

    41Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about the exploration of deep sea power supplies and the sex industry in Fuji.

    Or not.

    General CommentIts very simple- This song is about an angel and a demon expressing their views. It starts off with the angel paying his/her dues by praying and helping others. living the good life is hard, and at times love can fade away when you see alot of sick things.
    The devil or demon comes in and says, We are all going to die so lets have some fun. He wants to play on his pan pipes (which old illustrations of the devil shows a half man and half goat playing the panpipes.)
    The angel says I don't want this emptiness of going to sunset strip. Meaning-Why go to bars and waste your life on MINDLESS subject matters? The angel wants to lead the good life and not get burned.
    How I interpret the song? I like to believe it means- Work and have fun. Enjoy life or it will become mindless rubbish and help others out so they to can enjoy life with you.

    General Commenti have the whole thing except for the part where there are a lot of things going on at once and i think one of them is screaming "that's right, he said."
