Kingdom Of Heaven (Parody Of Stairway To Heaven)

Author: Parody
Theme: The Kingdom (Dominion) Of Heaven
There's a Savior who comes
with a sword in his mouth
and he's bringing the Kingdom of Heaven
When he gets here the blood will run up to the bridles
With his Word He will claim who he came for
oooh
and he's bringing the Kingdom of Heaven

Here's your sign on the wall, now's your time to be sure
Cause you know this might be your last warning

In a tree by the brook there's a songbird who sings
Calling you to the Kingdom of Heaven

oh___oh_oh ... does it make you wonder?

There's a feeling I get when I look to the sky
and my spirit is crying for leaving
In John's dream have you seen
a sea of glass filled with fire
and the voices of saints who stand singing

A___le lu_YAH
do you wanna go there?
A___le lu_YAH

And it's whispered that soon
if we all call the tune
then Messiah will lead us to reason
And a new day will dawn
for those who stand long
And the heavens will echo with laughter

A___le lu_YAH_______
A___le lu_YAH
A___le lu_YAH
Come up here to heaven

Love, there are two paths you can go by
In your life's long run
There's still time to change the road you're on
Beloved can you hear the wind blow?
- and did you know?
Your stairway's the Spirit-Wind

||: Alelu_____ Alelu_____ Alelu lu_____Ya__ah :||

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our souls
There walks a Savior we must know
Who shines white light and wants to show
Jah's Word can turn your heart to gold
And if you listen very hard
His tune will come to you at last
All will be one when One is all yeah
Jah is the Rock that doesn't roll

A le lu YAH
A le lu YAH
A ___ le___ Lu YAH
A le Lu -u-u-u YAH

Are you climbing the stairway to heaven?

Why Troy and Genie parodied The Classic "Kingdom Of Heaven (Parody Of Stairway To..." for YOU

I played Stairway all during my teenage years, at talent shows, concerts & recording sessions, with my squeaky little 12-year old voice. When I heard that the great Led Zeppelin were into witchcraft, I wrote Biblical lyrics to Stairway.

Are you (buying the) stairway (buying the) Kingdom of heaven?


ORIGINAL LED ZEPELLIN LYRICS:
There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
and she's buying a stairway to heaven
When she gets there she knows if the stores are all closed
with a word she can get what she came for
oooh
and she's buying a stairway to heaven
there's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
cause she knows sometimes words have two meanings
In a tree by the brook there's a songbird who sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven
// ooo it makes me wonder \\
There's a feeling I get when I look to the West
and my Spirit is crying for leaving
In my thoughts I have seen
rings of smoke through the trees
and the voices of those who stand looking
// ooo it makes me wonder \\
And it's whispered that soon
if we all call the tune
then the piper will lead us to reason
and a new day will dawn
for those who stand long
and the forests will echo with laughter
Oooh
oh_oh-oh_oh-oh
If there's a bustle in your hedgerow don't be alarmed now
It's just a spring clean for the May Queen
Yes there are two paths you can go by
but in the long run
there's still time to change the road you're on
And it makes me wonder
A__oh
Your head is humming and it won't go
in case you don't know
the piper's calling you to join him
Dear Lady can you hear the wind blow
and did you know?
You Stairway lies on the whispering wind__oh

ah_ah
And as we wind on down the road
our shadows taller than our souls
There walks a lady we all know
who shines white light and wants to show
how everything still turns to gold
and if you listen very hard
the tune will come to you at last
when all are one and one is all
to be a rock and not to roll

oh____

And she's buying a stairway to heaven
_________________
Apologetix version:
There's a way Jesus showed
All the sinners must go
And He called it the narrow way to Heaven
If to get there's your goal
With the pure heart and soul
In His Word you can get what you came for
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
He described it right there in Matthew 7
There's been signs all along
But you want to be sure
'Cause the road sometimes swerves as you're reading
In the free Bible book
There in John 3:16
Come find how all of our faults are forgiven

True words to ponder (x 2)

There's a freeway of death
And it hooks to the left
And the steering and driving is easy
It is not quite as it seems
Smell that smoke, feel the heat
Hear the voice of the Lord who stands knocking

Oooh, takes you under
Oooh, really takes you under

And it's His Word that's true
If we all follow through
Than the Bible will lead us to Jesus
And the true way will dawn
On those who've read John
Chapter 14 verse 6 and thereafter
Does anybody remember Jesus?

Oooh
Oh-ooh (x 6)

If there's a possible dead-end road
Don't be a lost man
It's best to think before you take it
Yes, there are two paths you can go by
For there's a wrong one
But there's still time to change the road you're on

Oooh
Can I take you up there?
Oooh-ho-oh-oh-oh

Your head it's somewhere and it won't go
The place you wanna go
If Christ has callen, you avoid Him
The way to Heaven's very narrow
And as you know
It's very wide on the way to Hell

(Break)

Where will you wind up down the road?
A shadowland or street of gold?
There is a way that we all know
He shines bright light on words that show
How every man still turns to dust
But if you let Him in your heart
The Truth will come to you at last
And it'll warn us where to go, yeah
And He is God He ought to know

And He called it the narrow way to Heaven

TESTIMONIALS
BrianGreat version of this song. Pure genius. Matched the pacing well. I'm on the pathway to heaven, but I keep straying off, just need to stay on the path.
