"Pearly Gates" as written by and Paddy Mcaloon....
Feel the sun upon your back
Someone somewhere wants to steal it
Pray each night you'll catch the thief
But while you sleep he comes and takes it
Does that make you think little girl?
Doesn't it just little boy
There'll be no stampede on the Pearly Gates
I'll say after you
You'll say I don't mind the wait
There'll be no stampede on those imposing doors
Naked and afraid,
Cowering we crawl on all fours
See the smile on her young face
Watch life casually erase it
Now I know she's all grown up
She wears a look I can't quite place yet
What makes you cry little girl?
Maybe I'm scared little boy
There'll be no stampede on the Pearly Gates
I'll say after you
You'll say I don't mind the wait
There'll be no stampede on those imposing doors
Naked and afraid,
Cowering we crawl on all fours
There'll be no stampede on the Pearly Gates
I'll say after you
You'll say I don't mind the wait
