"The Second Sitting For The Last Supper" as written by Kevin Godley, Graham Gouldman, Eric Stewart and Lol / Creme....
Another fish head in the dustbin
Another loser in the queue for the soup kitchen
Another reason for a visit
We think you'd better come down

Another nigger on the woodpile
Another honky on the dole
Another trip from off the 15th floor
The greatest story ever told
Was so wrong, so wrong

'Cause you promised milk and honey
With an everlasting life
And we listened with our ears closed
And a blindness in our eyes
But we heard them as they nailed you
And we saw you crucified

The second coming of the Holy Ghost
We need a pocketful of miracles
Two thousand years and he ain't shown yet
We kept his seat warm and the table set
The second sitting for the Last Supper

Another Guru in the money
Another mantra in the mail
An easy way from rags to riches
God's little acre's up for sale

The time is right for resurrection
We think you'd better come down
The church don't ring with hallelujahs
You haven't been for so long
So long, so long

Two thousand years and he ain't shown yet
We kept his seat warm and the table set
The second sitting for the Last Supper

    General CommentPeople looking for the easy route to salvation, happiness, money. TV evangalists, proliferation of beliefs. When you hit the bottom, salvation is required. Too many believe the bottom is lack of job, cash etc. Second coming? Did we have the first? Ask Muslims, Jews - too many religions, which one is right, are any right?

    General CommentA little sarcasm from the band here because Jesus has not returned yet. I believe that 10cc were Jewish guys so perhaps this is a shot at Christianity because Jewish faith does not believe that Jesus WILL come again - as I interpret their faith. ---and everyone is entitled to the beliefs of their faith ------ I find it kinda interesting that this is actually biblical prophecy fulfilling itself, once again. It states in the bible in 2 Peter 3:3 "...knowing this first of all that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, "Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since our fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation." "

    General CommentAt first I thought this song was a touch offensive. But now I think it is a simply a plea from a band with three Jewish guys that if Jesus really is God, we could use him down here.
