Believe in me, send us money 
Died on the cross and that ain't funny 
But my so called friends they're making me a joke
They missed out what I said like I never spoke
They choose what they want to hear, they don't tell a lie
They just leave out the truth as they're watching you die
They're saving your souls by taking your money  Flies around shit, bees around honey

[Chorus]
Holy Smoke Holy Smoke, plenty bad preachers for
The Devil to stoke 
Feed'em in feet first this is no joke
This is thirsty work making Holy Smoke yeah
 making Holy Smoke 

 Jimmy Reptile and all his friends 
Say they gonna be with you at the end
 Burning records burning books
Holy soldiers nazi looks  Crocodile smiles just wait a while 
Till the TV queen gets her make-up clean 
I've lived in filth I've lived in sin
And I still smell cleaner than the shit you're in

[Chorus]

Holy Smoke, smells good

They ain't religious but they ain't no fools 
When Noah built his cadillac it was cool
Two by two they're still going down
And the satellite circus just left town
I think they're strange and when they're dead
They can have a Lincoln for their bed
 Friend of the president trick of the tail
Now they ain't got a prayer 100 years in jail

[Chorus]

Holy Smoke
