The Lyrics

As you might know, I am not religious, but spiritual. Phil Alexander did a good job with his "Thank God I'm an Atheist", and he blamed God for Duran Duran. So he gave me a hint to a juxta-parody to a Duran Duran tune. This song is dedicated to my new nephew who incarnated in this Valley of Tears today, 29 Sept 2007.
Being born on Earth, my babe, you did leave the Paradise
You chose this life of hardships and things that ain't nice
You came here to live and learn the wrong from right
You came here to suffer and you came here to laugh -
you're part of greater who loves you when things are rough -

His name is Deus, Brahman, I-am-who-I-am,
Just call Him any name and He's sure to understand
And when the things are hard, remember that you can
End up as winner - child you are of something grand!

You have lived here before and you can come again
This life's for learning, baby, I know it's so much pain
But in the end you get the reward true -
You leave the Earth behind and go back home for sure

His name is God, Manitou, Spirit-in-the-sky,
Just call Him any name and you will see out why -
we are here at the first place, it's learning what is true:
the Dual Command of Love and the Golden Rule!

My baby, (aw), see you smile
Your mom'n dad love you too
At the start of the life, remember for a while,
You make me love and smile, and smile, and smile
Ill take my chance, cause luck is on my side
I tell you something, I know what youre thinking
I tell you something, I know what youre thinking

His name is Deus, Allah, Tagatha-garbha too -
and you are His child, yes, no matter what you do -
even if you de-ny Him, He sure believes in you
Live to your fullest, baby, and you will make it through!
