Lyrics 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 TODAY,
YOU'LL FIND IT NICE,
THE QUICKEST WAY
TO PARADISE.
WHEN YOU PRACTICE,
HERE'S THE THING TO DO -
SIMPLY SAY AS YOU GO:

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 GOT THE BLUES
AND UP ABOVE
IT'S SO FAIR
SHOES,
GO ON
AND CARRY ME THERE!

I'LL BUILD A STAIRWAY TO PARADISE,
WITH A NEW STEP EV'RY DAY.
