The Lyrics

I'm reading a book about Russia right now and that inspired me to write another parody about the Skoptsy.
Take the knife, take the knife, take the knife, go and do it
Take the knife, take the knife, take the knife, go and do it
Take the knife, take the knife, take the knife, go and do it
Serpent off, serpent off, serpent serpent serpent off

Sin comes from the lepost
Evil comes from sex
We'll hit back at the problem
So let's do that next

With this shaving knife, now I thee shall cut
You can't go to heaven if you keep your nuts
I've had them cut off of me
Now we must take them from you, you, you, you

Everybody everywhere
Salvation's in the air, oh yeah
It's time to strike the serpent off
Everybody everywhere, come on and join the Skoptsy
It's time to strike the serpent off
OW OW OW OW OW OW OW!
OW OW OW OW!
It's up to you now
It's time to strike the serpent off
OW OW OW OW OW OW OW!
OW OW OW OW!
Here's what you do now
You've got to strike the serpent off

Take the knife
Take the knife
Take the knife
It's time to strike the serpent off

If I cut twelve disciples
Then I will be assured
To get my place in heaven
That's Kondratii's word

Sometimes they scream loud; we've no Novocaine
It's good for the soul when you must fight through the pain
Sometimes it's not clear to me
Why the Tsars don't care for what we do, do, do, do

Everybody everywhere
Salvation's in the air, oh yeah
It's time to strike the serpent off
Everybody everywhere, come on and join the Skoptsy
It's time to strike the serpent off
OW OW OW OW OW OW OW!
OW OW OW OW!
It's up to you now
It's time to strike the serpent off
OW OW OW OW OW OW OW!
OW OW OW OW!
Here's what you do now
You've got to strike the serpent off

Take the knife, take the knife, take the knife, go and do it
Take the knife, take the knife, take the knife, go and do it
Take the knife, take the knife, shaving knife, go and do it
Serpent off, serpent off, serpent serpent serpent off

Folks borrow cash from us Skopts'
No kids, so we gotta adopt
We're found everywhere in the land
Everywhere in the land, we're growing our brand
From Kiev to Tuva and Perm
We're a bunch of men without worms
Flat-chested women as well,
Flat women as well, flat women as well

Everybody everywhere
Paradise is there, oh yeah
It's time to strike the serpent off
Everybody everywhere, come on and join the Skoptsy
It's time to strike the serpent off
OW OW OW OW OW OW OW!
OW OW OW OW!
It's up to you now
It's time to strike the serpent off
OW OW OW OW OW OW OW!
OW OW OW OW!
Here's what you do now
You've got to strike the serpent
OW OW OW OW OW OW OW!
OW OW OW OW!
You've gotta make the cut now
OW OW OW OW
You've gotta make the cut now
