The Rapture

  • tune: I’ve Been Working on the Railroad

We’ve been waiting for the Rapture
To lift us up to heaven.
Today’s the day they promised lift-off
At twenty past eleven.
First, we’ll see the Angel Gabriel,
And then the chariots come.
But only for us true believers–
Not you other scum.

  • Chorus:
    We will be the first.
    The rest of you are cursed–
    The flames of hell are waiting there for you.
    There’ll be a mighty fire,
    And you’ll be on the pyre.
    When God fires up the barbecue.

We’ve read the Book of Revelation–
Every gory bit.
Lots of thunderclaps and smiting,
In the good old holy writ.
We confess we once were sinners,
But we’ve joined the righteous squad.
Sent our money to the preacher–
Now we’re right with God.

(tune: “Someone’s in the Kitchen wth Dinah”)
Who cares about global warming,
Poverty or wa-a-ar?
Who cares about the future–
We won’t be around any more!

Repeat Chorus
