Why do they shut me out of Heaven?

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?
