Ry Cooder – Humpty Dumpty World lyrics
Our God looked down what did He see
The work of His mighty hand
Saying if this world should end it wouldn't hinder me
As I contemplate the works of man

I made man and woman I gave them simple tools
And all the charming creatures to keep their company
But they desired of things that was against the miles
And television was the worst of all
Yes now television was the worst of all

It's a humpty dumpty world a humpty dumpty world
A ball of confusion spinning around and around and around
I thought I had built upon a solid rock
But it's just a humpty dumpty world

Rabble rousing politicians on the TV screen
Sowing the seeds of hate and fear ih
I've heard it said you sow and you shall reap
Don't come crying to me when you fall
Craven minions sent from down below
Occupy the highest portals of the land
As swift as their climb as sure is their decline
Straight back to hell from whence they came

I'm leaving in the morning go ye and do likewise
Get your Coke jug, boys bottle up and go
Tell the saints and angels we're bound for Mexico
And laissez le bons temps rouler
Down in Mexico
Laissez le bons temps rouler

It's a humpty dumpty world a humpty dumpty world
A ball of confusion spinning around and around and around
I thought I had built upon a solid rock
But it's just a humpty dumpty world

That's all it is
(A humpty dumpty world, a humpty dumpty world)
I wouldn't give you a nickel...
