about

"If Jesus came back and saw what was being done in his name, he'd never stop throwing up." -Woody Allen

lyrics

It was like something
Out of a science-fiction movie
The resurrection of a man
Long ago forgotten

He was the son
Of some migrant old grump
Nothing but skin and bone
Rags and tatters
And misbegotten

He had a funny look
Neither here nor there
He wore a plain white shirt
And a well-worn slack

He said he had to go away
But he would return
And sure enough
He kept his word
And he came back

He said he must put an end
To all the world's hatred
And he would put an end
To all of its folly

And he did what he said
And he said what he did
And we stood back and said
Wow and by golly

He had a funny look
Neither here nor there
He he took a lot of heat
And he took a lot of flack

He took our guns
And he took our bombs
And he beat them
Beat them into plows

And we fought back
And we hunted him down
And we bludgeoned him
And it barely raised any eyebrows

He had a funny look
Neither here nor there
He he took a lot of shit
He took a lot of smack
