lyrics

Sign of the Cross (B-Day Version)

Do you wanna go to heaven?
I wanna go to heaven and I wanna be good
I pray to Jesus every day
And I have this new dance called the Sign of the Cross
And if you all follow me we will go to heaven
I promise

I wanna have some fun tonight
I never have a happy day
I never get to feel right
Please will you help me find the way?
Let's do the sign of the cross
It made me feel real boss
Do a genuflection
Maybe you'll get an erection
Doin' the sign of the cross

If you're depressed and full of strife
If you are sick of living life
If you are sad and full of woe
I have the key to fun behold behold!
Let's do the sign of the cross
It made me feel real boss
Do a genuflection
Maybe you'll get an erection
Doin' the sign of the cross

If you're afraid you'll go to hell
You better start your dancing now
If you don't quite get up to heave
I'll guarantee at least purgatory
Let's do the sign of the cross
It made me feel real boss
Get up get down get dancin'
Do the sign of the cross
Do a genuflection
Maybe you'll you will get a big erection
Get up get down get dancin'
Do the sign of the cross

If you're depressed and full of strife
If you are sick of living life
If you are sad and full of woe
I have the key to fun behold!
Let's do the Sign of the cross
It made me feel real boss
Do a genuflection
Maybe you'll get an erection
Doin' the sign of the cross

If you're afraid you'll go to hell
You better start your dancing now
If you don't quite get up to heaven
I'll guarantee at least purgatory
Let's do the sign of the cross
It made me feel real boss
Get up get down get dancin'
Doin' the sign of the cross
Do a genuflection
Maybe you'll get an erection
Get up get down get dancin'
Do the sign of the cross

Follow me before it's too late for your salvation!
