One two three four...wait, that's too fast

*burping*

One man, one man without a gun
Lonely, one man who stood alone
His name was Jesus
Named after a man who hung on a cross
Being not a man of consequence
Jesus did not have a prayer
For he was pitted against
The sort of folks that are not the sort
Of folks who are the sort who care

One man, one man without a gun
Lonely, one man who had no one
Dying, he died a William Holden death
Drunken, liquor upon his dying breath
His blood flowed as mighty rivers flow
But he did not suffer any pain
His final act was to not act at all
The nectar had boiled his brain

One man, one man without a gun
Lonely, one man who stood alone
All dressed up, with no place special to go
As he stands and knocks
At the gates of heaven
The lord, he was out
The gates were all locked up
A sign hung on the gate
Said the lord would return at 7:00

One man, one man without a gun
Lonely, one man who stood alone
One man, one man without a gun
Lonely, one man without anyone
