GOD IS A REAL ESTATE DEVELOPER
Michelle Shocked


with office around the nation

They say one day he'll liquidate

his holdings up on High

I say it's all speculation


He may be an absentee landlord

This may be a low rent universe

The roof may need repairs

but at last the floor is there

And the rent is not due 'til the first


So save one last dance for the Saviour

when that final Hail Mary is said

Life is a dancehall

That's why we've got all those

little angels dancing around with pinheads


The Lord Almighty, Limited

And his chosen elect

Site on the Up on High Development Board

quoting the bible as they hoard

The Good Book has a new look, I suspect.


So save one last dance for the Saviour

when that final Hail Mary is said

Life is a dancehall

That's why we've got all those

little angels dancing around with pinheads
