Steinway to heaven

There’s a lady who’s sure
The ace of spades is the cure
And she’s buying a Steinway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows
If the pubs are all closed
With a song she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she’s buying a Steinway to heaven.

There are signs on the wall
But she wants to be sure
’cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a town by Utrecht
There’s a lost soul who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There’s a feeling I get
When I look for a test,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen
Scenes of beauty to behold,
And the voices of those who are longing.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really 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.

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.

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
Your Steinway lies on the whispering wind.

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How ev’rything 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.

And she’s buying a Steinway to heaven.
