Church on Sunday sleep and nod Tryin` to duck the wrath of God Preachers fillin` us with fright They all tryin` to teach us what they think is right They really got to be some kind of nut I can`t use it Tryin` to make it real compared to what Where`s that bee and where`s that honey Where`s my God and where`s my money Unreal values a crass distortion Unwed mothers need abortion Kind of brings to mind old young King Tut He did it now Tried to make it real compared to what Tryin` to make it real compared to what
