--Christian Rock--
I woke up in the morning,
and I got myself some oatmeal,
and I put some raisins on it and,
Christ is God,
Christ is God,
God, God, God...

--Jewish Rock--
I woke up in the morning,
and I got myself some lox and bagels,
and I put some cream cheese on them and,
Christ isn't God,
he's just not God,
he's a really nice guy but don't get carried away...

--Atheist Rock--
I woke up in the morning,
and I got myself a whole box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch,
'cause I just don't care anymore,
and there is no God,
sorry about that,
your Grandma's in the ground and her soul's stayin' there...

--Agnostic Rock--
I woke up in the morning,
and I got myself some organic wheat puffs,
and I put some soy milk on them and,
there might be a God,
there's really no way to know,
he might be a fish or he might be a spoon...

All I wanted was a song about oatmeal.

    General CommentI love Mike Birbiglia. There's no need for me to explain what the song means because, well, it's written right there. He was describing Christian Rock and then started to ponder what Jewish, Athiest, and Agnostic rock would sound like.
