I wish I was a christian, knew what to believe
I could learn a lot of rules to put my mind at ease
I wish I had the money to live just like a queen
With Demerols and Cashmere and every little thing
I wish the ones who loved me would never go away
Would've had to have my company every single day

But who do I believe in this world without sound
Who do I believe once they put you in the ground
Who do I believe when the night's fallin' down

I wish I lived in Paris and dreamed in French each night
And had a dozen children and raised them up just right
I wish I was John Lennon, free as a bird
And all of you who sit and stare and hang on every word
I wish I had the future tied up with a string
Then I would never feel the blows the revolution brings

But who do I believe in this world without sound
Who do I believe once they put you in the ground
Who do I believe when the night's fallin' down

I wish I was a christian, but I cannot believe
'Cause no one in the bible craves my company
