about

A ludicrous song filled with morals for the modern man. This is not christian rock!

lyrics

I came upon a church, out upon a bog
I met a man inside, who said he talked to god
The words that he told me they were so very fine
He told me what not to do with my spare time
He said

Son love your neighbour
Don't love your sister
No matter what you do, you gotta resist her
Son love your neighbour
Don't love your sister
You gotta watch that girl you know

Cause you go to hell when you die
And the devil'll be there and he'll stab you in the eye
He'll burn your tongue and cut your nose
Take a pencil parer to your fingers and toes
Brake your arms at the elbows
And that won't be nice
So..

Son love your neighbour
Don't love your sister
No matter what you do, you gotta resist her
Son love your neighbour
Don't love your sister
You gotta watch that girl you know

I came upon a temple, far away from mans creation
I met a man inside transcendental meditation
The words that he told me they were so very wise
He told me what not to do with my spare time
He said

Son love your neighbour
Don't love your sister
No matter what you do, you gotta resist her
Son love your neighbour
Don't love your sister
You gotta watch that girl you know

Cause you go to hell when you die
And the devil'll be there and he'll stab you in the eye
He'll burn your bowels and fry your spleen
Put your lung and heart in a washing machine
Soak your eyes in kerosene
And that won't be nice
So..

Son love your neighbour
Don't love your sister
No matter what you do, you gotta resist her
Son love your neighbour
Don't love your sister
You gotta watch that girl you know
You gotta watch that girl
You gotta watch that girl
You gotta watch that girl you know
