lyrics

I’ve seen unholy things
Some things I wish I could unsee
Like when I wake up in the morning
Lord knows what’s staring back at me
Like the son of Uncle Sam
I’m gonna kick out this jam
And just like Kevin Dubrow
I’m gonna rock my Jew-fro

I didn’t come for no refreshments
I didn’t come for no compliments
I saw you, I love you, I need you
And I’ve just gotta ask:
Have you seen me in my Nudie suit?

When I see you up there
Affixed to your crucifix
I think of all the times I’ve lied
And all the times I nearly died
But now I’ve gotta come to Jesus
That’s right, I’ve gotta come to Jesus
Well, Jesus was a Jew
And I’m a Jew for Jesus

I didn’t come for no refreshments
I didn’t come for no compliments
I saw you, I love you, I need you
And I’ve just gotta ask:
Have you seen me in my Nudie suit?

Always tell the truth
That’s one thing they can’t take from you
Even if it seems cruel
Even if they laugh and throw it back at you

And I know you always tell me the truth
That’s one thing I will say for you
And I know you don’t mean to be cruel
I know you don’t mean it
But I love you even if you do

You ever feel you’ve been cheated?
You ever feel you’ve been had?
After all is said and done, lord,
To realize you were scammed?
I want to feel the earth below me
And curl my toes up in the sand
Maybe drift out in the ocean
And look back at this troubled land…
