I slept through Easter yesterday,
Right through Christmas, just the same.
The priest came up to me, all up in arms.
He said: "Devil boy, what have you done?"
Hey devil boy,
We're gonna blow you're house in.
Hey devil boy,
What do you think of that?
For heaven's sakes,
It's only been two thousand years.
I can't wait any longer for you.
The Jesuits rolled in their tanks, to my front door,
While the Capuchins held a love-in on my front porch.
The Augustinians kept to themselves, stuck their tongues out in a row.
They said, "Devil boy, it's off to hell you go!"
Hey devil boy,
We're gonna blow you're house in.
Hey devil boy,
What do you think of that?
For heaven's sakes,
It's only been two thousand years.
I can't wait any longer for you.
And so I'll sit and pray for her to call me there.
And I'll burn that bridge a thousand times, on the cross I bear,
Just to wonder if you're listening from a soap box in the sky.
To finally realize my price, was it you or I?
Hey devil boy,
We're gonna blow you're house in.
Hey devil boy,
What do you think of that?
For heaven's sakes,
It's only been two thousand years.
I can't wait any longer for you.
For heaven's sakes,
I'd give away eternity,
If you would come back to me, if you would come back to me.
If you would come back to me, if you would come back to me.
