George is in the jungle
Knockin' on the door
Come to get your children
Wants to have a war

Come on, lord you'd better run,
Be a long dark night before this thing is done

Brownie's in the outhouse
Katrina on the line
Government's a disaster
But George, he says it's fine

Come on, lord you'd better run,
Be a long dark night before this thing is done

Rummy's in the kitchen messin' with the pan
Dickie's in the back stealing everything he can
Come on, Lord you'd better run,
Be a long dark night before this thing is done

You better run, you better run,
Lord you better run, Lord you better run,

Runnin' down the highway
Shoutin' to the Lord
George's got religion
And you know he can't afford more, yeah

Come on, Lord you'd better run
Be a long dark night before this thing is done
Be a long dark night before this thing is done, oh Lord
