The Lyrics

This one is inspired by the Gary Larson cartoon entitled simply 'God at his Computer,' which shows a bearded man in robes in front of a screen watching a stereotypical redneck and preparing to hit a button marked 'Smite' on his keyboard. For something that was inspired by a funny cartoon, this one turned out slightly melancholy though...

Here's a link to the OS.
If God had a choice, what would it be
Would he go Mac or get PC?
Could he ‘Delete’ Bin Laden and Gadaffi?
Is Global Warming kind of like McAfee?

‘Cos where, where, where’s he been?
Why’s he never seen?
How come? What’s that mean?

What if God’s fed up with us?
Just ticked off with all of us?
Would he make a great big fuss
Or give up and go home?

Perhaps we’re no fun, this online age
When he could play an Elf Mage
And level up in Epic magic armour
Log into Facebook, Friend Mohammed on MySpace, or Tweet with Buddha

‘Cos yeah, yeah, God’s gone quiet
While we raze and riot
We’re screwed, can’t deny’it….

What if God’s fed up with us?
Just got bored with all of us?
Thinks that we’re superfluous
And said “You’re on your own?

You’re destroying your home
But all you do is whine and moan
Well I can’t fix this on my own
Don’t pick on me, leave me alone.”

Yeah, God, if you’re true
I’d feel just like you
I’d play Tetris too….

What if God’s fed up with us?
Sick to death of all of us?
Feeling real rebellious -
Doesn’t hear what you’ve said
Watches YouTube now instead
Let’s hope he don’t admit defeat
And hit ‘Control-Alt-Delete’

Can’t save the world or me and you
‘Cos he’s got other things to do

Thought I'd drop in from the AWOL universe to give this one HUGE praise and two big thumbs up... a brilliant bit of satire- admittedly melancholy but still wonderfully funny. BRAVO!!!! 555
