Version:

You won't get to heaven on the back of a camel
And you won't get to heaven on a sheep
You won't get to heaven on a double decker bus
And you won't get to heaven in a jeep
A pogo stick will only make you feel sick
And you can't drive there in a car
A rocket in your pocket might make you see stars
But it sure won't get you that far

There's only one way one way one way one way
You can get to heaven oh yeah
There's only one way one way one way one way
That's through God's Son Jesus
He's the only way

You won't get to heaven by looking real good
And you won't get to heaven 'cos you're slick
You won't get to heaven by jumping from a plane
And by flapping your arms real quick
A flight or a kite or an elastic band
Might whizz you through the air
Or you could scuttle in a shuttle
Right over the moon
But it still won't get you there

You won't get to heaven by saying you're a Christian
And you won't get to heaven 'cos you're good
You won't get to heaven just by going to a church
Though many may think you could
A mum or a dad or a sister who loves Jesus
Won't get you there it's true
Oh you're in favor with the Savior
But this you gotta know
You need to find Him just for you
