"Good Girls Go To Heaven (bad Girls Go Everywhere)" as written by and Jim Steinman....
When the wind is howling through your window pane
It's not the only pain of the night
Your burning up in your bed, you gotta fever of love
And there's not an antibody insight
Hey jenny, jenny why are you crying
There's a beauty of a moon in the sky
But I guess when you've been leading such a sheltered life
You never lift your head and look so high

You don't have a lot
But it's all that you've got
And you can turn it into more than it seems
Just give it a shot
Fantasize every movement
And imagine every inch of your dreams

And no one said it had to be real
But it's gotta be something you can reach out and feel now
It ain't right
It ain't fair
Castles fall in the sand
And we fade in the air
And the good girls go to heaven, but the bad girls go everywhere
Ooh now good girls go to heaven, but the bad girls go everywhere
Sombody told me so
Somebody told me now I know
Every night in my prayers
I'll be praying
That the good girls go to heaven, but the bad girls go everywhere

When the sweat is sizzling
On you skin in the dark
And your desperate now for somewhere to turn

Every muscle's in rebellion
Every nerve is on edge
And every limb is being erotically burned

Hey johnny, johnny why are you shaking?
When a boy should do whatever he can
You've been nothing but an angel
Every day of your life and now you wonder what it's like to be bad

You don't have a lot
But it's all that you've got
And you can turn it into more than it seems
Just give it a shot
Fantasize every movement
And imagine every inch of your dreams

And no one said it had to be real
But it's gotta be something you've been wanting to feel now
It ain't right
It ain't fair
Castles fall in the sand
And we fade in the air
And the good boys go to heaven, but the bad boys go everywhere
Good boys go to heaven, but the bad boys go everywhere
Somebody told me so
Somebody told me now I know
Every night in my prayers
I'll be praying
That the good boys go to heaven, but the bad boys go everywhere

Every time I try and dream you
I can't believe how hard it's been to
Conjure up your face and trace your body in the air
All the seconds go on forever
But the thirds and the forth ones are even better
And every time I do it just a little bit longer
Every time I dream, it's just a little bit stronger than
Real life

And no one said it had to be real
But it's gotta be something you can reach out and feel now
It ain't right
It ain't fair
Castles fall in the sand
And we fade in the air
And the good girls go to heaven, but the bad girls go everywhere
Ooh now good girls go to heaven, but the bad girls go everywhere
Somebody told me so
Somebody told me now I know
Every night in my prayers
I'll be praying
That the good girls go to heaven, but the bad girls go everywhere

    Lyric CorrectionEvery time is two words. It's not "everytime." Does anyone proofread these lyrics before submitting them?

    Song MeaningThis song is about fantasies about a crush. It's not about sexual fantasies. People tend to go beyond and interpret lyrics to reflect their own styles and thoughts (e.g. thinking nearly every song is about drugs). Good Girls Go to Heaven is simply about dreams and fantasies about the one you desire the most, but the one just might seem out of reach.

    General Commentmasturbating isn't just jerking off though... fingering is masturbation too...

    anyway, i used to have a gf named jenny, and as much as i like the image in my head of her masturbating (among other things) i've got to say, that interpretation just doesn't ring out to me.

    first, there is mention of two ppl. a jenny and a johnny. it could just as easily be about sex with whoever's available...

    but it could also be about fantasies altogether, and their importance, and not just sexual ones either.

    but then again, if thats anywhere near the mark, there sure is a hell of a lot of sexual metaphor there...

    General CommentIf you like the Meat Loaf version, dig up Jim Steinman's Pandora's Box, where this song (and a number of others Meat Loaf covered) originally appeared.

    The Pandora's Box version kicks the Meat Loaf version to the curb.

    (And I agree, it's definitely about making Mr. or Ms. Happy happier. Only Jim Steinman could get away with making a song like that into a smash hit.)
