I am a crooked man bent down by sin

Flood water's rising fast; (oh lord!)
Dead bodies floatin' past; (oh fie!)
Tornadoes swoopin' down; (right down!)
Out of Satan's jeweled crown. (oh lord!)
I had a date tonight, (yessir!)
With a gal from out of state. (oh lord!)
Her daddy was a police man; (that's right!)
Had himself a police badge. (oh boy!)
He said I'm DOOMed to fail; (why's that?!)
Said his daughter's better off in jail!
I am a crooked man bent down by sin.

My uncle was a Christian man, (oh lord!)
But the Lord didn't give a damn. (no voice!)
He lived sick and homeless. (so poor!)
When he died, I didn't even notice. (no sir!)
Me, I only got one belief: (what's that?!)
Everything's worse than it seems. (oh lord!)
I'm a DOOMsday preacher, boy! (you are?!)
Get your bucket, it's time to cry!
I am a crooked man bent down by sin.

To other folks, I cannot relate.
I could try, but I ain't.
People just want fancy cars;
Fancy house, expensive clothes.
FUCK THAT SHIT, it's fuckin' wrong! (yeah boy!)
All I want is to live real long. (how long?!)
I wanna watch my body decay; (oh lord!)
My health suffer, and my hair turn grey (yeah boy!)
Then the Devil can take me away, yeah;
Satan, you can have your way!
I am a crooked man bent down by sin.
