I've got a shirt made by little girl’s hands in a little warehouse on a little island
I bet she's even got herself a little boyfriend
But she'd drop him in a flash for an American man

We're coming to get you
We're coming to save you
We're coming to free you
From those who enslave

Energy is constant
Gentlemen are temporary
Never eat an apple from an orchard
That was formally a cemetery
Subsidiaries in any lesser than
Sit and be quiet until I invert the pentagram

Rack of lamb - Bethlehem style
Drained bloodless
Pagan gods love this
Sucked shrimp cocktail
Get your girl's hair crimped; take her to a yard sale

Donkey elephant hyper copy written by Disney land
Take the turban off - build only waterparks rediscovered sand

Wait lets tell the truth (yeah)
We're not Holier-than-thou
But Holy cow!
There's people doin' stuff that God would never allow.
Like guys kissing guys,
And poor people too!
There's plenty of jobs - find somethin to do!

We think abortion is pretty messed up,
If you don't want a kid, then don't be a slut.
There's plenty of races, on God's green planet -
That doesn't mean you have to breed with them, Goddammit!

I've got a shirt made by little girl’s hands in a little warehouse on a little island
I bet she's even got herself a little boyfriend
But she'd drop him in a flash for an American man

I think I got that right. This is my favorite Grand Buffet song!

    General CommentI don't know if I'd go so far to say that they hate religious right... but it is a sarcastic song.

    General CommentAmericus is the name of the child in the Oprah Book of the Month Club novel, Where The Heart Is. Her mother is pregnant, and homeless inside a Wal-Mart. And, well, that's a perfect example of the far right wing.
