Buddy Houghtaling – Mr. Darwin lyrics

[Verse 1]
Mr. Darwin, I address you
To the subject of this song
And I hope you're not offended
When I tell you that you're wrong
But when you tell me that
My ancestor's a flower or a tree
Mr. Darwin
I have to disagree

You said that we were slimey once
And crawled out of the sea
And though I am no scientist
I know that wasn't me
I don't know just what possessed you
To say all the things you said
But when Jesus comes
Your face will sure be red

[Chorus]
For it was God who formed me from the dust
And gave my body shape
It is He who I descended from
And not some hairy ape
And it is He that loves and cares for me
This much I know is true
And Mr. Darwin
Jesus Christ loves you

[Verse 2]
I have a little dog at home
He's got a lot to give
And though he is my little friend
He's not my relative
And when I go into the zoo
To look at all the living things
It's just a visit
And not a family gathering

[Chorus]
For it was God who formed me from the dust
And gave my body shape
It is He who I descended from
And not some hairy ape
And it is He that loves and cares for me
This much I know is true
And Mr. Darwin
Jesus Christ loves you

[Verse 3]
I cannot condemn you
For the things you tried to say
All I know is you and I
Were never made that way
And though my little furry friends
Show similarities
Let's not make
A monkey out of me

Mr. Darwin, when the life you led
In Heaven's court is tried
I hope you changed the tune you sang
Some time before you died
Cause when Jesus comes He's gonna take
His children off the ground
And you're just gonna
Have to stick around

[Chorus]
For it was God who formed me from the dust
And gave my body shape
It is He who I descended from
And not some hairy ape
And it is He that loves and cares for me
This much I know is true
And Mr. Darwin
Mr. Darwin
Jesus Christ loves you
