The Lyrics

It is about an old man that lives in a retirement home and all of a sudden dies this parody will tell you about his ride through Heaven and Hell.
See myself in the old folks home
See the end of my life come now
I watch myself fly through the clouds
I watch death come over me

Yeah, yeah
Here I am now, falling through the sky
I pick up my speed and they start to cry
People cry all night, they cry all day
Some have lived and lots have died

Here I am in the fires of hell
I watch the red man whip the wall
I watch a flame move across the room
I watch the flame burn over me

Here I am now he's gonna burn me soon
Fright in my face as he throws the flame
Some have lived but most have died
Watching out for a heavenly day
Where there's love there will soon be darkness


Here we are now he's gonna burn us all
I look at the fiend as he starts to scream
Bright at night stays light all day
He's screamin' 'cause of the sunny day

Here we are now zippin' through the blue sky
We pick up our souls and we hope we won't die
Fly at night, fly through heaven's clouds
