It's not the number of times he tried to
But the one time that he did.
I once told him to beware of things to come,
But I was the one who should be scared.
All the police and handcuffs didn't bother him.
He's sure that God would understand.
Oh, the killings in the convent hall.
The cleaning bill was outrageous.
Gavin killed a nun:
"She had it coming and she got what she deserved."
God helps those who help themselves.
All the kids at recess rallied for his cause.
The paid their lunch money for his bail.
For all the times he tried to do it
Well he finally got it right.
All the kids in school just think of Gavin
As a folk hero because school's let out all day.
Sister Mary's yardstick once broke on Gavin's hand,
But now Gavin's set things right.
Sister Mary's yardstick once broke on Gavin's hand,
But now Gavin's sent Sister Mary to the promised land.
To the promised land!
Gavin killed a nun:
"She had it coming and she got what she deserved."
God helps those who help themselves.
All the kids at recess rallied for his cause.
The paid their lunch money for his bail.
Gavin killed a nun:
"She had it coming and she got what she deserved."
God helps those who help themselves.
All the kids at recess rallied for his cause.
The paid their lunch money for his bail.
Yeah!
