The Lyrics

Let's go seekin' now,
No sacred cows; touch of Tao,
Come on, seek satori with me
(Come on, seek satori with me).

First you gotta throw your earthly baggage out
And dress in a simple sarong.
Forget about your "would be"s
And look deep inside
And then wait until we hear the gong.

Come on (seekin') Buddha let's go seek (seekin' satori)
Quest--I'm gonna (seekin') take you seekin' (seekin' with me)
Come saronged (seekin') Buddha let's go seek (seekin' satori)
Quest--I'm gonna (seekin') take you seekin' (seekin' with me).

Let's go shoppin' now,
Even a man can learn how.
Come on a shoppin' spree with me
(Come on a sartorial spree).

We're hunting for a perfect suit,
Also a smart pair
Of shoes to cover the dress hose.
And as far as wearing a sarong, well--don't you dare;
We're gonna shop at Nordstrom's for clothes.

Come on (seekin') boots, suit let's go seek (seekin' sartori)
Quest--I'm gonna (seekin') take you seekin' (seekin' with me)
Come try on (seekin') boots, suit let's go seek (seekin' sartori)
Quest--I'm gonna (seekin') take you seekin' (seekin' with me).

Let's go seekin' now--
Gloves made from unsacred cow,
Come on seek sa[r]tori with me
(Come on seek sa[r]tori with me)

They're danglin', your suspenders; let your dharma rule,
Kick off a koan; kick off shoes,
You're seekin' sa[r]tori in style,
Gettin' enlightened more each day. . .
In Hawaii, wear light clothes and recluse.

Come on (seekin') Buddha let's go seek (seekin' satori)
Quest--I'm gonna (seekin') take you seekin' (seekin' with me)
Come try on (seekin') boots, suit let's go seek (seekin' sartori)
Quest--I'm gonna (seekin') take you seekin' (seekin' with me).

We went seekin' now
For truth, suit; we found both, wow!
And some lovely accessories. . .
Glove on hand that claps silently.

Haber-
(Seekin' sartori)
dash'ry
(Seekin' sartori)
Dharma,
(Seekin' satori)
Duty
(Seekin' satori)
Hands, gloves
(Seekin' sartori)
Light brown
(Seekin' sartori)
Hand clap
(Seekin' satori)
What sound?
(Seekin' satori)

And, hopefully, that loud, rumbling, cosmic "OM" you hear is not the sound of your Karma-Bus about to run your Buddhist-butt over!
