Met an ugly man in Reno
Ladies hangin' on his arm
In a lipstick-red Porsche
Downtown, sellin' his charm
Dealin' out a new prescription
A faster way to make things pay
"Step into the bargain basement, Boy,
Let me show you my tray."
He says, "Heaven is a long way later,
These'll keep you flyin' high."

But I'll keep walkin', thank you
(Walkin')
I keep walkin', thank you

Ha, ha, skinny man in horn-rim glasses
Chokin' on a power tie
He's rolled up in a Wall Street Journal, mm
"You disinform, you don't lie."
A gamble on a speculation,
Redefine a cardinal sin
"You're runnin' on a fast-track theory, baby,
You gotta cheat to win"
He says, "Heaven is a long way later
You gotta run to beat the bottom line."

Well, I keep walkin', thank you
(Walkin', walkin')
I keep walkin'
(Walkin', thank you)
Thank you

Cannibal who thinks he's Moses
Underneath a fine toupee
A handle on a revelation
"Righteousness the easy way"
A vision and a confirmation
Emotional in every plea
"Take a precious few to Glory-Land
'Cause everyone is wrong but me."
He says, "Heaven is a long way later
Get a ticket on the Glory Train."

Well I keep walkin', thank you
(Walkin')
I keep walkin', thank you

I keep walkin', thank you
(Walkin'!)
Ah
Heaven is a long way later
Don't you wanna walk with me?
Say! Heaven is a long way later
Walk with me
Heaven is a long way later, Baby
Walk with me
Huh, Heaven is a long way later
Walk with me
Heaven is a long way later
Sing it, Girls
(Heaven is a long way later)
Hey!
(Heaven is a long way later)
Heaven is a long way later, ha!
Walk with me
Heaven is a long way later
Walk with me
Hey!
(Heaven is a long way later, walk with me)
Walkin', now
(Heaven is a long way later, walk with me)
Break it on down
(Heaven is a long way later, walk with me)
Break yourself
(Heaven is a long way later, walk with me)
Walkin', walkin', walkin', say!
(Heaven is a long way later, walk with me)
Walk, walk, walk with me, hey
(Heaven is a long way later)
Heaven is a long way later,
(Walk with me)
