I'll Build A Stairway To Paradise

(Gershwin-DeSylva)


I'll build a stairway to paradise
With a new step every day
I'm gonna get there at any price
Stand aside, I'm on my way

I got the blues
And up above is so fair
Shoes, go on and carry me there
I'll build a stairway to paradise
With a new step every day

It's a madness
To be always sitting around
In the sadness
When you could be learning the steps
Of a 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

Oh, I'll build a stairway to paradise
With a new step every day
Oh, 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
Well shoes, go on and carry me there
I'll build a stairway to paradise
With a new step every day
With a new step every day
