Goliath
by Steve Taylor & The Perfect Foil



 

The saints came marching in this morning
and they marched back out the door
wholly offended
No pun intended

They gave up God for Lent and liked it
Declared Civilian War
No oneís relented
No pun intended

And Iíll be doing stand-up here all week
Iíve learned to sign
so the deaf can watch me speak

The saints came marching back this evening
and they fell right through the floor
That numberís ended
No pun intended

The Amen Coronerís marching orders
got nailed to my front door
Theyíre all amended
No pun intended

The King of the One Liners
had us thrilled
Then came the punchline
Now we want him killed

And when heís gone
Gone
Who gets the mic
if itís on?

The buzzards are attacking
our prayer kites
We lost the air war
Now weíre losing squatterís rights

And when theyíre gone
Gone
Weíll need a new
comedian

Man makes plans. God laughs.
Man makes plans. God laughs.

The King and I began a feud
that time will not erase
until he wipes that
omniscient smile
off his face

The King and I are in a feud
that time will not erase
until you wipe that
omniscient smile
off your face

And when itís gone
Gone
Itís open mic
Is this on?

And didnít I thank you from the dais?
And didnít I do you good?
And didnít I take up all your crosses
that were made of balsa wood?

I kept my demons pent up so long
the devil himself lost track
Iíve since repented
No pun intended

We stormed the stage
and occupied your place
to wipe that all-forgiving smile
off your face

Itís been there so
long
Please welcome back
the first, the last
Comedian
