We’re gonna have some fun today
Yeah we’re gonna shake, we’re gonna laugh and play
And I’m gonna pray for a time today
God’ll give me a jar of marmalade

We’re gonna do what we’re meant to do
With a chest gesture and an attitude
And I’m gonna pray for my bank account
And Jesus gonna give me more than I could ever count

We’re gonna take everything we’re owed
All spoils and boons from the long hard road
And I’m gonna pray for help with the game
Jesus gonna give me that pound of cocaine
And Jesus gonna give me the fame

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

Haven’t yet seen the best time today
Tell me, what ever happened to the “ask and take”?
So I’m gonna pray to a different man
If God can’t help, maybe the Devil can

We’re gonna live like kings and queens
We’ll stay smart and only flirt with greed
I’m gonna promise my soul and my praise
So the Devil gonna give me that big old raise
And the Devil gonna take up my case

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

Haven’t yet seen greener grass nor trees
Nothing good or bad, it’s just the same old scene
So I’m gonna pray to a different set
If the Devil can’t help, I’ll take the government

Because they give me rights and they send me checks
And they let me smoke my cigarettes
If heaven and hell require something of me
I’m just gonna sit around and be free
And ignore the democrats and the G.O.P.
And America, well she don’t really ever ask that much of me
And if She does, then fuck it, I'm just gonna leave

And move to Canada, hallelujah

    I think the meaning is kinda obvious so I'm not going to explain it.
