Come on dear friends
Come gather round the mountain
Drink from the fountain
Tell your lovers it's time to go
Tell them the tale when Sodom met Gomorrah
The end days are coming
The mothers send away the sons

The drummers drum and the motors hum
And the trumpet players make the chords
The sound wakes devil down below

Jesus and Mary and Juliet and Romeo
In a movie on TV, plays seven days a week
Turn off that radio we don't wanna hear about it anymore


Kill or be killed, the hunters and the hunted
Seems like we're running 2000 years and still under control
So let's go start a war like FDR and Eleanor
These were the ways of the men before
The ammunition and, soldiers and guns

Lovers love and the mourners mourn
And the trumpet players blow the horn
The sound wakes devil down below

Jesus and Mary and Juliet and Romeo
In a movie on TV, plays seven days a week
Turn off that microphone we don't wanna talk about it anymore

The sermon ends with a big Amen
And the preachers take it door to door
The sound shakes devil down below

Jesus and Mary and Juliet and Romeo
Are in a movie on TV, plays seven days a week
Turn off that telephone we don't wanna know about it anymore

So maybe let's go start a war

    General CommentI don't have the booklet but I'm pretty sure the correct lyrics are as follows.


    Come on dear friends
    Come gather round the mountain
    Drink from the fountain
    Tell your lovers it's time to go
    Tell them the tale when Sodom met Gomorrah
    The end days are coming
    The mothers send away the sons

    The drummers drum and the motors hum
    And the trumpet players make the chords
    The sound wakes devil down below

    Jesus and Mary and Juliet and Romeo
    In a movie on TV, plays seven days a week
    Turn off that radio we don't wanna hear about it anymore


    Kill or be killed, the hunters and the hunted
    Seems like we're running 2000 years and still under control
    So let's go start a war like FDR and Eleanor
    These were the ways of the men before
    The ammunition and, soldiers and guns

    Lovers love and the mourners mourn
    And the trumpet players blow the horn

    I love the song by the way. It's a war song. But if you've seen the music video then the interpretation is changed slightly to be about the "feud" between Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolee over Brad Pitt. I rather like that interpretation.
