The Lyrics

Ah, look at all the holy people
Ah, look at all the holy people

Mother Teresa
Picks off the lice from an urchin on Calcutta's streets
Makes sure he eats
Prays at the window
Rosary beads that she keeps in a box by the door
Serving the poor

All the holy people
Where do they all come from ?
All the holy people
Where do they all belong ?

Carpenter Jesus
Speaking the words of good news to whoever will hear
Sinners come near
Caught by the Romans
Hung on a cross where he died and then rose from the grave
He came to save

All the holy people
Where do they all come from ?
All the holy people
Where do they all belong ?

Ah, look at all the holy people
Ah, look at all the holy people

Gautama Buddha
Saw the world's pain and sat down underneath the Bo Tree
Truth he did see
Became enlightened
Taught for decades how to live and die with perfect peace
Let craving cease

All the holy people (Ah, look at all the holy people)
Where do they all come from ?
All the holy people (Ah, look at all the holy people)
Where do they all belong ?
