God Said, "Get Up!"
God said to get up at a little after five.
He said come on, get up, you’re still alive.
I said God I didn’t go to bed till after one!
God said there's some work I’m wanting done.
I said God what do You want with me?
You know I got up at three, to pee.
Lord what if I choose to refuse?
Lord said son if you snooze you lose.
Lord there ain’t enough of me to go around.
I’m really tired of being bounced around.
God there’s so much internet, what can I tell ‘em?
Can’t they “do a search? What can I sell ‘em?
And while we’re at it-why am I so gruff.
Ain’t I sad and lonely enough?
I don’t drink wine. I don’t drink beer.
I don’t come over when someone says, “come over here”.
Don’t you get tired of pulling my chain?
What’s the point? What’s the gain?
You need another martyr? I’m ready to go.
We have millions. It’s the status quo.
Let somebody else be me for a while.
I’d like to be the one with a smile.
I do these things you want me to do.
I just keep smelling like doggy doo.
Always another fine mess You’ve got me in.
Why can’t I wear a s#!t eatin’ grin?
Now just look what I’ve said! Ain’t that a sin?
God said, “Now Mick, you know I’ve got a thicker skin.”
“Speaking of skin- I like your tattoos.”
But God, folks were saying that’s one of your taboos.
“Yeah, there are many who say they’re talking for me it seems.
In their dreams. Most are Pharisees with subtle schemes.”
But God, You know I’ve closely followed you,
Could You give me a better hint, of what to do?
I’m really tired of being Micky Dee.
Why can’t somebody else be me?
People don’t care about what I’ll say.
They’re tied up with other problems day after day.
They don’t have time to make a rhyme,
Before they know it, it’s dinner time.
There’s blood and oppression and aggression
There’s war after war in rapid succession.
Since the beginning of time they’ve never ceased.
The Americas, Europe, Far East, Middle East.
God I know where my loyalty lies.
But haven’t I had enough tears in my eyes?
God I have nothing else to give,
my life has been a sieve.
“MD you are not afraid to die,
And so you’re not afraid to live.”
“I want you to wield a sword,
Disguised as a pen.
Tell ‘em if it isn’t covered by the Golden Rule-
it’s probably a sin!
People who worship the one true God must come together.
Religions are from every corner of the Earth.
Religions are as numerous as there are people.
Religion is a personal thing.
Spirituality is very personal.
Let's all meet where we agree.
The Golden Rule is in EVERY true religion.
Let us love one another.
Let us "do unto others as we would have them do unto us".
THIS is the law of Jesus.
It is the law above laws.
Let's get there!
