spirit in the sky lyrics – gareth gates

all right, dad, you’re ready?
hold on, hold on! smaaa deee daaa… ok, ready!

ummi, you’re ready?
chrrrrggrhr… ready.
great…
let’s kick it!

when i die and they lay me to rest,
gonna go to the place that’s the best.
when they lay me down to die,
goin’ up to the spirit in the sky.

goin’ up to the spirit in the sky (spirit in the sky)
that’s where i’m gonna go to when i die (when i die).
when i die and they lay me to rest,
i’m gonna go to the place that’s the best.

what, wembley?
not wembley, you idiot, he means heaven!
i thought we got reincarnated?
i’d like to come back as gareth’s hair gel. hehehehe…

prepare yourself, you know it’s a must.
gotta have a friend in jesus or krishna,
so you know that when you die,
he’s gonna recommend you to the spirit in the sky.
see? it’s who you know!

goin’ up to the spirit in the sky (spirit in the sky)
that’s where i’m gonna go when i die (when i die).
when i die, and they lay me to rest,
i’m gonna go to the place that’s the best.

could you be more specific?
is it driving distance?
i’m goin’ to need a comfort break!
there better not be stairs wherever it is!
ah shut up, this is my big sitar solo!

sanjeev, keep it down, the neighbours!

never been a sinner,
i’ve never sinned,
i got a friend in jesus.
he’s so sweet…
so you know that when i die,
he’s gonna set me up with the spirit in the sky.

oh, send me up with the spirit in the sky (spirit in the sky)
that’s where i’m gonna go when i die (when i die).
when i die and they lay me to rest,
i’m gonna go to the place that’s the best.

oh, send me up with the spirit in the sky (spirit in the sky)
that’s where i’m gonna go when i die (when i die).
when i die and they lay me to rest,
i’m gonna go to the place that’s the best.

goin’ on up to the spirit in the sky (spirit in the sky)
that’s where i’m gonna go when i die (when i die).
when i die, and they lay me to rest,
i’m gonna go to the place that’s the best.
you already said that, but where?
go to the place that’s the best.
an address would be helpful!
go to the place that’s the best.
i don’t think he knows…
go to the place that’s the best.
he keeps saying the same thing.

well, would you reckon?
is will young available?
