lyrics

LYRICS by Marianne Dissard :

When I was a little girl,
I used to go to church.
Now I'm not a little girl
so lemme tell you what I've learned.

There's a heaven for dogs.
There's a heaven for pigs.
There's a heaven for birds.
But there's no heaven for us.

When I grew up, a big girl,
I went to some fancy schools
where I found in all my books.
the same eternal truth.

Hard-knotted truth under covers
of paperbacks and magazines,
Hard-knotted truth in deep rivers
of eyes that glow with ice at noon.

There's a heaven for cats.
There's a heaven for cows.
There's a heaven for elephants.
but there's no heaven for us.

When I can't breathe anymore
and I'm no use to this world,
somebody, feed me to sharks
so I can make it to heaven.

There's a heaven for flies,
There's a heaven for frogs,
There's a heaven for worms
and apes and shrimps and goats
