YouTube link: “If You Want Heaven”

 

Girl, wishing won’t get you to heaven

If you were meant to be happy for me

Stop treating me like you do, ooh, angel

Ooh, never love lost may forgiven

Where you be sitting in Sunday school

Show us that old golden rule

You better be good, girl.

 

If you want heaven you gotta make heaven all by yourself (reach out)

If you want heaven you gotta make heaven for somebody else (reach out)

Can’t go around thinking just of yourself love will pass you by if you do

 

Hey, girl!

 

You’ve causing your heart lots of trouble

Caught in your own little bubble of love

Wondering why you get blue, ooh baby

So, quiet and shy, yeah, that’s you girl

Sweet as a cake all the way through (reach out)

You can’t have your cake and love too, you know you’ve gotta reach out

 

If you want heaven you gotta make heaven all by yourself (reach out)

If you want heaven you gotta make heaven for somebody else (reach out)

Can’t go around thinking just of yourself love will pass you by if you do

 

Oh, reach out, reach out

 

Ooh, if you want heaven (oh, reach out)

Ooh, if you want heaven (oh, reach out)

 

If you want heaven you gotta make heaven all by yourself (reach out), oh yes you do now

If you want heaven you gotta make heaven for somebody else (reach out)

If you want heaven you gotta make heaven all by yourself (reach out), oh, you yes you do now

 

If you want heaven, yeah, yeah, yeah (reach out)

 

 

Thank you Melanie Johnson for your corrections to the lyrics.
