I'm a humble guy
no really I try
you know it's hard sometimes

true...and hard working too
working...to get to see you

come on....be good to me
come on....be good to me
here it comes here it comes holy joe

please..don't make me say please
to champagne and ice-cream
it's not what I want, it's what I need

precocious...just a little precocious
expialidocious...yeah yeah yeah

devotion....and some appreciation
a little heavy rotation
looks good on me

you know it's not hard I can think of a lot harder...oh yeah
just wanted our moment to last a little longer...yeah

come on....be good to me
come on....be good to me
here it comes here it comes holy joe

having the best time of anybody's life
closer than ever to everybody's wife...oh yeah

come on....be good to me
come on....be good to me
here it comes here it comes holy joe

    General CommentIt's all about this guy named Joe who runs a cult that Bono and the other members of U2 joined for a little while up in Ireland.

    General CommentI read it was about mastubation. Kinda odd for a U2 song, but that's why it's a b-side

    General CommentFreaks. :p

    Obviously the song is about a self-righteous bastard who preaches humility and a born-again religiosity but is, in fact, two-faced and full of shit. It's the mirroball man all over again. It's Bono riffing on the weaselly gloss-coated hypocrisy of televangelists.
