Jehovah's witness, leave me alone
Jehovah's witness, I'm not at home
Keep on a-knockin' and ringin' the bells
Knockin' your way straight to hell

Jehovah's witness, let's not pretend
That for one second you are my friend
Knock on my door and I'll turn out the light
Close the curtains and turn in for the night

Jehovah's witness, why must it be
Just when I'm feeling good I look out and see
You walking up in your very nice suit
Like I'm some old lady who'll give up her loot?

Jehovah's witness, leave me alone
Jehovah's witness, I'm not at home
Jehovah's witness, leave me alone
Jehovah's witness, I'm not at home

    General CommentI think this song should resonate with anyone who's been approached by another under false pretense. With claims that they care (about you, your soul, your well-being) but really have a hidden agenda.

    General CommentI don't think that it would be socialy acceptable if there were a song badmouthing jews, or mormons, or any other religion. So why is it ok for the eels to say these things about Jehovahs Witnesses?

    General CommentI do not imply Jehovah's Witnesses have a hidden agenda, so much as trying to share my mental image, from this song, of anyone who approaches with a smile, and a book (or a pamphlet) trying to (albeit gently) persuade a total stranger to believe as they do.

    Not sensing a smile of true friendship, not an open hand in acceptance of what one is, but trying to close the deal for one's salvation. It might feel like a sales job.
