Wandering down the Champs Èlysee
They tip their hats and say it’s good to see ya
Hope your having a wonderful day
They take a Hovercraft across the river
Jesus could walk but the others might sink
They spend a franc on a bottle of water
And in a flash they’ve got plenty to drink
They smoke some cigarettes they drink some wine
They break some bread and butter
Man, that sounds divine
 
      And if this is what everybody meant by heaven on earth
      I think it’s kind of literal
      If you take the truth and write it in cement
      You throw away everything that’s beautiful
      Ya, it’s beautiful
 
They met a preacher out of Tulsa, Oklahoma
Drove in a limo and his wallet was fat
He didn’t recognize Mary or Mona
Said, “I thought Jesus was much taller than that”
They had a fight about a line in the bible
Jesus said, “Hey preacher man, take a second look”
The preacher said, “Hey Buddy, I could sue you for libel
I know some judges and they’ll throw you the book”
They smoke some cigarettes they drink some wine
They break some bread and butter
Man, that sounds divine
 
      And if this is what everybody meant by heaven on earth
      I think it’s kind of literal
      If you take the truth and write it in cement
      You throw away everything that’s beautiful
      Ya, it’s beautiful
 
The preacher said goodbye with a deceptive kiss
Mona Lisa grabbed his throat and said, ‘Kiss this’
Jesus went back to his father in heaven
Mary went home to a husband named Joe
Mona Lisa said, “Forget the museum
I met a man and I’m ready to go
Smoke some cigarettes drink some fine wine
Break some bread and butter
Man, that sounds divine”
 
      And if this is what everybody meant by heaven on earth
      I think it’s kind of literal
      If you take the truth and write it in cement
      You throw away everything that’s beautiful
      Ya, it’s beautiful
