Sister Act the Musical - Take Me To Heaven (Reprise) Lyrics
[Welcome this Sunday morning. Oh ye few, but faithful. The choir,
I am told, has been working diligently all week long under a new director,
Sister Mary Clarence, who will now lead them in sacred hymn. Sisters...]
Benedicta tu (benedicta tu)
in mulieribus (in mulieribus)
et benedictus fructis ventris tui Iesus (Iesus)
[Ay, Sisters, that's the loveliest you've ever sound -…]
[A one-two-three-four! Here they one, falks! Hot off their
novenas, blisterin’ with sisterhood. Queen
of Angels is proud to present - The divas
who Believe-a. The nuns with the Fun,
voulez-vous prier avec The Little Sisters of
Our Mother of Perpetual Faith!]
I been thinkin' aboutcha since receivin' your call.
Can’t see livin’ withoutcha, You’ve got me mind, soul, body and all!
Pray and I pray every night and each day –
Hopin' that you'll drop a line.
Pray and I pray 'til you sweep me away –
Straight to cloud number nine!
Aw, you are simply too divine!
Take me to heaven (heaven!)
take me to ecstasy (ecstasy!)
I'll give you all I've got, 'cause nothin's as hot as when you groove with me!
No, no, no, no.
And when you strut your stuff, and do your thing.
I just can't help surrendering!
You're so strong, you’re so sweet,
you’re what makes me complete. I just worship at your feet!
Take me to heaven, take me to kingdom come
I'll take any vow –
Just take me now!
[Monsignor. I'm shocked - I don’t know what to say!]
[Neither do I! Look, people are coming in off the street to hear them!]
Ooh, baby, (just how to thrill me -)
I wanna praise your (ah!) name to the skies!
[What are you doing?!]
[And puttin' booties in the seaties, Mama!]
Ooh, baby, (only you can fulfill me)
I've given up on all other guys! (Ah -)
[Sister Mary Clarence!]
[Be with ya in a sec, I'm workin' the room!]
Take me to heaven! Take me to paradise!
Give me your healing touch
I need it so much!
(And, oh, it feels so nice!)
Just tell me what you want
I can't refuse day or night
I’m yours to use!
(I’ll get on my knees – Just take me please!)
[If you like our sound, falks, shake your
pockets to the beat! And toss whatever
you find in the offering basket, so we can
keep giving the love to The Man Up Above!]
Don't know how you do
what you do, (unh - unh)
it's like you're almost
too good to be true (unh- huh)
you're my hope! (Hope!)
You're my dream! (Dream!)
You rock my world! You reign supreme!
[Sister Mary Patrick, oh dear Lord! Mary Lazarus! You know better than this!]
You put the boogie – uh! (uh!) into my soul!
You got the boogie – uh! (uh!)
makes me lose control. (Beep beep!)
Hoo hoo hoo!
My booty’s headin’ for a special place,
where people shake it, baby, wrapped in love’s embrace!
[No! Not little Mary Robert!]
[This is profanity!]
[Come on, Mama, smile!]
Take me to heaven!
[This is an abomination!]
[Maybe so, but the crowd’s eatin’ it up!]
[Look at those tithings pour in!]
[This’ll save our parish, for sure!]
[Get out of my sanctuary!]
[Back offa my stage!]
[Oh, sister – you do make a joyful noise! And Reverend Mother –
bless you for seeing the light. Sister Mary Clarencce is our salvation!]
Take me higher! Take me higher!
Aww. Take me to heaven!
Aww. Take me to heaven!
Aww. Take me to heaven! Take me there!
