Going up to the 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
This song is about jesus and is upbeat and peppy but the lyrics are just downright depressing as hell. I'm surprised nobody mentioned this song at all. :)

Never been a sinner, I never sinned
I have a friend in Jesus.
A lot of listeners have mistakingly believed that this was a Christian worship song. In fact, it was mocking Hare Krishnas and other Christian fundamentalists. This line is a dead givaway in saying that, to a fundamentalist, Jesus can only be friends with followers "who have never sinned" in their entire life, as opposed to the common Christian belief that one is born a sinner and is "made perfect" by the body and blood of Christ.
