The Lyrics

Peter Robert Phillips Jr AKA Jesus Christ, applied for a driver's license in West Virginia using his legally changed name and as you could imagine he is getting grief from the DMV for his name. I guess if this guy gets that license we could learn the answer to that question "What kind of car would Jesus drive?" Click here for related news story.
They named him after his dad,
The name didn't stay, yeah.
It's not 'cause driving is bad,
But his need to pray.
He want's a ticket to drive,
He want's a ticket to drive,
He want's a ticket to drive,
It seems unfair.

He moved from Windy City,
He's West V-A bound, yeah.
His name he changed, can't you see,
To one more renown.
He want's a ticket to drive,
He want's a ticket to drive,
He want's a ticket to drive,
It seems unfair.

I don't know why they're ridin' this guy,
He paid the court price,
He changed the name twice, you see.
His name is Jesus Christ that is why,
The change is unwise,
Tempers may ignite, judge pleas.

The name change isn't a fad,
His documents say, yeah.
They think he's jiving them bad,
Check his dossier, yeah.
He want's a ticket to drive,
He want's a ticket to drive,
He want's a ticket to drive,
It seems unfair.

No wonder why applying's denied,
It makes you think twice,
Hey is that name right I see?
The name on applicaton supplied,
It makes you blink twice,
This isn't true, right? Can't be.

Maybe soon he will be,
Out drivin' around, yeah.
And then every-one will see,
The answer is found.
What kind of car does he drive?
What kind of of car would He drive?
What kind of of car would He drive?
That's if you care.

It just don't seem fair, It just don't seem fair.
It just don't seem fair, It just don't seem fair.
It just don't seem fair, It just don't seem fair.

I thought he already had a license?? I When I was a kid and my father was driving, if someone cut him off, he would always yell, "Jesus Christ!" Anyway, I "saved" three 5s for ya.

Reminds me of when I was the manager of a surplus store on Hollywood Blvd. in the early to mid 1980's - they was a guy who went up and down the Blvd. dressed (and looking like) Jesus - he had a full-size cross, too...same as the original, except this fellow installed wheels on the bottom to make his burden easier. I used to wonder why he didn't motorize it, too. 5's...

There was this story here in the papers just a few days ago about a Norwegian prisoner that beat the system the sneaky way and legally changed his last name to something that had a bit of weird spelling but was pronounced as to mean "not guilty". :-)

That's a tricky subject to write about (some guy calling himself Jesus), but you did it well. Good work. I like the he..guy, He...actual Jesus, in the last verse. Good work. 5's

Isn't that dude in a car-pool with Buddha, Krishna, Mohammed, and The Pointer Sisters?
