The Lyrics

Many African slaves and their descendants identified with ancient Israel and its history of captivity and liberation. Today's corruption and contempt in Washington D.C. call to mind another Biblical story. The original lyrics repeat after five verses, I decided to write new verses instead. On the orginal recording, Mr Dekker often throws in exclamations of "oh" or "Sir". Feel free to add as you wish. Note: I do not advocate the following course of events, only I say, the Lord's will be done.
A speech, January, State of the Union
So that every lie may be said
Oh, Lord! Send meteorite!

Each January starts a new session
So that every dime may be bled
Oh, Lord, send meteorite!

House and the Senate meeting together
Vote to take away every right
Oh, Lord, need meteorite

Two thousand pages, nobody read them
Got to pass in the dark of the night
Oh, Lord, come meteorite!

Health care is free, got no job to pay for
Have to sleep in a box every night
Oh Lord, where's meteorite?

How different now my life from a slave, sir
Slave have job and a place for his bed
Oh Lord, send meteorite!

Big rock from Heaven, hurled by Jehovah
The wicked with judgement he'll smite
Oh Lord, the meteorite!

Not looking back on the fire and the brimstone
Don't want to end up like Lot and his wife
Oh Lord, the meteorite

God's chosen people, blessed liberation
Bid farewell to those parasites
Oh Lord, the meteorite

Thank you for meteorite
I wonder who I'm voting for
Need meteorite
Our country down and out, sir
