Why Do They Shut Me Out Of Heaven?

from by Jacqueline Novikov



by Aaron Copland


Why - do they shut me out of Heaven?
Did I sing - too loud?
But - I can sing a little minor,
Timid as a bird.

Wouldn’t the angels try me -
just - once - more -
Just - see - if I troubled them -
But don’t - shut the door!

Oh if I - were the Gentlemen
in the White Robe
and they - were the little Hand -- that knocked --
Could - I - forbid?
Why do they shut me out of Heaven?
Did I sing too loud?
