OLD TIME RELIGION

Give me that old time religion
Give me that old time religion
Give me that old time religion
And that's good enough for me

It was good for the Hebrew children
It was good for the Hebrew children
It was good for the Hebrew children
And that's good enough for me

It was good for Paul and Silas
It was good for Paul and Silas
It was good for Paul and Silas
And that's good enough for me

We will pray to Aphrodite
Even tho' she's rather flighty
And they say she wears no nightie
And that's good enough for me
We will pray with those Egyptians
Build pyramids to put our crypts in
Cover subways with inscriptions
And that's good enough for me
O-old Odin we will follow
And in fighting we will wallow
Til we wind up in Valhalla
And that's good enough for me
Let me follow dear old Buddha
For there is nobody cuter
He comes in plaster, wood, or pewter
And that's good enough for me
We will pray with Zarathustra
Pray just like we use ta
I'm a Zarathustra booster
And that's good enough for me
We will pray with those old Druids
They drink fermented fluids
Waltzing naked thru the woo-ids
And that's good enough for me
Hare Krishna gets a laugh on
When he sees me dressed in saffron
With my hair that's only half on
And that's good enough for me
I'll arise at early morning
When the sun gives me the warning
That the solar age is dawning
And that's good enough for me
