The Needle’s Eye

Category: Poetry/Lyrics

Matthew 19:24 “Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

              THE NEEDLE’S EYE

Well it says here in the good book that every man’s a king
And that Jesus loves every single soul
It also says the rich man cannot have everything
Cause he’ll never get through that tiny hole
If you want to get to heaven
Then you better not be rich
Cause the bible says no rich man need apply
Your big fat soul is gonna make the needle drop a stitch
If you can’t fit through that needle’s eye
That needle’s eye, that needle’s eye
That needle’s eye, that needle’s eye
You won’t get into heaven no matter how you try
If your soul can’t fit through that needle’s eye

Now some people say Saint Peter is the keeper of the gate
And he tells you where to go when you die
But you won’t even get to meet him no matter what your fate
If your soul can’t fit through that needle’s eye
If you want to get to heaven
Then you better not be rich
Cause the bible says no rich man need apply
You thought that you could have it all but there’s one little hitch
There are just some things that money cannot buy
It can’t buy a place in heaven no matter how you cry
If you can’t fit through that needle’s eye
That needle’s eye, that needle’s eye
That needle’s eye, that needle’s eye
No matter how long and hard you cry
Heaven awaits but you won’t get through the pearly gates
Unless your soul fits through that needle’s eye
