Frank Zappa – The Meek Shall Inherit Nothing lyrics

Some take the bible
For what it's worth
When it says that the meek
Shall inherit the Earth
Well, I heard that some sheik
Has bought New Jersey last week
'n you suckers ain't gettin' nothin'

Is Hare Rama really wrong
If you wander around
With a napkin on
With a bell on a stick
An' your hair is all gone...
(The geek shall inherit nothin')

You say yer life's a bum deal
'n yer up against the wall...
Well, people, you ain't even got no
Deal at all
'Cause what they do
In Washington
They just takes care
Of number one
An' number one ain't you
You ain't even number two

Those Jesus Freaks
Well, they're friendly but
The shit they believe
Has got their minds all shut
An' they don't even care
When the church takes a cut
Ain't it bleak when you got so much nothin'
(So whaddya do)
Eat that pork
Eat that ham
Laugh till ya choke
On Billy Graham
Moses, Aaron 'n Abraham...
They're all a waste of time
'n it's yer ass that's on the line
(It's yer ass that's on the line)

Do what you wanna
Do what you will
Just don't mess up
Your neighbor's thrill
'n when you pay the bill
Kindly leave a little tip
And help the next poor sucker
On his one way trip. ..
Some take the bible. ..
(Aw gimme a half a dozen for the hotel room!)
