Thing-fish:
Welcome to the quentin robert de nameland video chapel of economic worship!
Ensemble: (singing)
Some take the bible
For what it's worth
When it says that the meek
Shall inherit the earth
Well, I heard that some sheik
Has bought new jersey last week,
'n you suckers ain't gettin' doodly!
Is all de mammys really wrong,
If we's wandrin' aroun'
Wit' de nakkin on?
Big ol' lips like a duck,
While we's singin' dis song,
(evil prince, people, he cain't do nothin'!)
Thing-fish:
You say yo' life a 'bum deal',
'n yo' 'up against de wall'?
Well, people, you ain't got no kinda

Ensemble:

Well, they're friendly, but,
The shit they believe
Has got their minds all shut,
An' they don't even care
When 'the church' takes a 'cut'!
(ain't it bleak when you've got so much nothin'? )
Thing-fish:

Thing-fish:
