Song Meaning
Verse 1
After seven days
He was quite tired so God said
"Let there be a day
Just for picnics, with wine and bread"
He gathered up some people he had made
Created blankets and laid back in the shade
Verse 2
The people sipped their wine
And what with God there, they asked him questions
Like, do you have to eat
Or get your hair cut in heaven?
And if your eye got poked out in this life
Would it be waiting up in heaven with your wife?
Verse 3
God shuffled his feet and glanced around at them
The people cleared their throats and stared right back at him
Verse 4
So he said "once there was a boy
Who woke up with blue hair
To him it was a joy
Until he ran out into the warm air
He thought of how his friend would come to see
And would they laugh, or had he got some strange disease?"
Verse 5
God shuffled his feet and glanced around at them
The people cleared their throats and stared right back at him
Verse 6
The people sat waiting
Out on their blankets in the garden
But God said nothing
So someone asked him "I beg your pardon
I'm not quite clear about what you just spoke
What that a parable, or a very subtle joke?"
Verse 7
God shuffled his feet and glanced around at them
The people cleared their throats and stared right back at him
