  • Verse One
  • All you preachers
  • Who delight in panning the dancing teachers,
  • Let me tell you there are a lot of features
  • Of the dance that carry you through
  • The gates of Hea-ven.
  • It's madness
  • To be always sitting around in sadness,
  • When you could be learning the steps of gladness.
  • You'll be happy when you can do
  • Just six or seven;
  • Begin to day!
  • You'll find it nice,
  • The quickest way to paradise.
  • When you practise,
  • Here's the thing to know,
  • Simply say as you go...
  • Chorus
  • I'll build a stairway to Paradise
  • With a new step ev'ry day !
  • I'm gonna get there at any price;
  • Stand aside, I'm on my way !
  • I've got theblues
  • And up above it's so fair.
  • Shoes ! Go on and carry me there !
  • I'll build a stairway toParadise
  • With a new step ev'ry day.
  • Verse Two
  • Ev'ry new step
  • Helps a bit ; but any old kind of two step,
  • Does as well. It don't matter what step you step,
  • If you work it into your soul
  • You'll get to Heaven.
  • Get bu-sy ;
  • Dance with Maud the countess, or just plain Lizzy:
  • Dance until you're blue in the face and dizzy.
  • When you've learn'd to dance in your sleep
  • You're sure to win out.
  • In time you'll getSaint Vitus dance,
  • Which beats the latest thing from France.
  • Take no chances on this Paradise ;
  • Let me give you advice.
  • Chorus (x2)
