To the tune of "When I Paint My Masterpiece" -- with a little of New Morning mish-moshed in.
Can't you hear that shofar blowin'? Judgement Day will come anon And when you hear Them trumpets blazin' You will know which side you're on. Got to hurry on back up to the Wailing Wall Where I got me a date with Jeremiah's niece, Yeah, she promised to make sure I wouldn't get too lonely, When the dead get undeceased! Hassidic men drinking brandy Had to be held back by kid police Oh one day everything's gonna be clear like a stream in Minnesota - And I'll timeshare me a condo with Mother Terese I left Lod and landed in Libya With some letters I knew better than to call Oh there's only so much time God's gonna give ya Think it's time to read the writing on the wall! Can't you hear that shofar blowin'? It's a Jericho rooftop midnight melody. Every prayer gets an answer And God's been good, so good to me. Every prayer gets an answer And God's been good, real good to me.
