The Lyrics

It's a thin line - between kook and saint
It's a thin line - between kook and saint

It's somewhere in slums of Calcutta
and she's doing her things
There's knock on the front door
and abandoned girl disease-ridden
Who is it?
She opens up the door and lets her in
Never once asks her how's it been
She says: "Are you hungry?"
"Did you eat yet?"
Here, lay yourself on the bed
change on clean dress
All the time she's smiling
Never once complains of a thing
It's five o'clock in the morning
Mother Theresa, she's unselfish as can be

It's a thin line between kook and saint
It's a thin line between kook and saint

The neatest creed in the world
could be the meanest creed in the world
If you want it that way -
You keep twisting it
You will pervert it
You really make up something real foul
That'll really really is just pure hate -

I see that mean website
Full of rancour and hate
It's a quite of shock
Really a libel parade
You couldn't believe someone
could preach something like Phelps, ha!
You didn't think that man had the balls
But here it is -
and his actions speak louder than words

It's a thin line - between kook and saint
(repeat)

Linda, Linda, don't you realize how thin is the line between kook and saint?

There is no use on calling me with names and libelling on me. You lost already when you made that insult song. Any 1s you give me only increase the number of my total votes, and giving 1s on pacing for a perfectly paced song is mere ranting and being carried off with your emotions.

And if someone like Fred Phelps really is your hero, you really have deserved the title of resident kook.
