The Lyrics

Just a little song about your friendly neighbor, the Mormon.
Let me tell you 'bout a place
Somewhere near the Great Salt Lake
Where the people always pray
Talkin' 'bout Latter Days

Here they have a lotta fun
In Deseret so don't get stung
You'll find a shrine to Brigham Young
Talkin' 'bout Latter Days

I'm
Talkin'
Talkin'
Knockin' on Heaven's Gate
I'm
Talkin'
Talkin'
I'm talkin' bout Latter Days

Here's a man in formal clothes
On a two-year mission he chose (and)
Book of Mormon he really knows
Talkin' 'bout Latter Days

He's walkin' dressed in white and black
Actin' holy, he's got a knack
Oh man there ain't nothin' like
Talkin' with Latter Days

I'm
Talkin'
Talkin'
Knockin' on Heaven's Gate
I'm
Talkin'
Talkin'
I'm talkin' bout-

Let's talk awhile!

Sit up! Lean not!
Sit up! Lean not!
Moroni! Now fast! Now tithe!
I'm talkin' 'bout Latter Days

Here's a fella, shaven clean
No dating 'till the age sixteen
Who's dolled up in CTR rings
Talkin' 'bout Latter Days

To Starbucks they will never go
BYU they'll likely enroll
In '96 they voted Dole
Talkin' 'bout Latter Days

I'm
Talkin'
Talkin'
Knockin' on Heaven's Gate
I'm
Talkin'
Talkin'
I'm talkin' bout-

One more time!

Sit up! Lean not!
Sit up! Lean not!
Moroni! Now fast! Now tithe!

As a practicing member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I gotta hand it to ya. This was a great parody and dead on tease of LDS culture! Great pacing and very interesting choice of original song. Aside to Johnny D: "More Mon?" AAAAUUUUUUGGGGHHHHHH!
