The Lyrics

I was going to do another "Velveeta" thing to this, but it's been done; so I went with the words the original song refers to, Garden of Eden.
Tree of knowledge of good and evil
Don't you know not to eat that fruit?
Eat from it and as God has warned you
Out of Eden you'll get the boot

Oh, won't you obey Me
Do as I say
Oh, won't you obey Me
And here you'll stay
And here you'll play

Adam couldn't resist it, baby
Eve said come on and eat some, too
Adam couldn't resist her, baby
So he did what he shouldn't do

Oh, won't you obey Me
On just one thing?
But Adam just could not
He had his fling
he had his fling

Tree of knowledge of good and evil
Don't you know not to eat that fruit
Doesn't matter if orange or apple
God forbids it and that's the truth

Oh, won't you take this leaf
And clothe yourself?
here, take this big fig leaf
And clothe yourself
And clothe yourself

Now you know about good and evil
Cause you tasted them both, firsthand
Now you know about good and evil
Now you're cast out of Eden, man

Oh won't you work and sweat
For all your life
oh won't you work and sweat
You and your wife
You and your wife

Eve ate of the apple and then did Adam, so now we all feel the pressure of two evils. Such an apple-ing parody.

Hey, you know me, I like putting a good old classic Bible passage into a song parody - and you did a good job of it here, Royce.
