You'll Never Get to Heaven (If You Break my Heart)
Dione Warwick
written by Burt Bacharach & Hal David

- (#34 in 1964)

Mother told me always to follow the golden rule.
And she said it's really a sin to be mean and cruel.
So remember if you're untrue
Angels up in heaven are looking at you.

You'll never get to heaven if you break my heart.
so be very careful not to make us part.
You won't get to heaven if you break my heart. . .

I've been hearin' rumors about how you play around.
Though I don't believe what I hear, still it get's me down.
If you ever should say goodbye
I'd feel so awful the angels would cry.

(if you break my heart, If you break my heart)

I can hardly wait for the day when we say I do.
It's a day i dreamed of so long now comin' true.
You will promise to cherish me.
If you break your promise the angels will see.


La, la, la, la, la, la, laaaaa, la, la, la, laaaaa, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la, la, la, laaaaa, la. la, la, laaaaa, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la, la, la, laaaaa, la, la, la, laaaaa. . . .

    When two people brake their words of love & trust. It goes deep in the spirit. Making one not wanting to believe in another's lies to give it angain! And the good inside maybe covered for life.
