Levon wears his war wound like a crown He calls his child Jesus 'cause he likes the name
And he sends him to the finest school in town

Levon, Levon likes his money He makes a lot they say Spends his days counting In a garage by the motorway 
He was born a pauper To a pawn on a Christmas day
When the New York Times Said God is dead and the war's begun Alvin Tostig has a son today 
And he shall be Levon And he shall be a good man
And he shall be Levon In tradition with the family plan
And he shall be Levon And he shall be a good man
He shall be Levon 
Levon's sells cartoon balloons in town
His family business thrives Jesus blows up balloons all day
Sits on the porch swing watching them fly
And Jesus, he wants to go to Venus Leave Levon far behind Take a balloon and go sailing, While Levon, Levon slowly dies

He was born a pauper To a pawn on a Christmas day
When the New York Times Said God is dead and the war's begun Alvin Tostig has a son today 
And he shall be Levon And he shall be a good man
And he shall be Levon In tradition with the family plan, woo
And he shall be Levon And he shall be a good man
He shall be Levon 
And he shall be Levon And he shall be a good man
And he shall be Levon In tradition with the family plan, woo
And he shall be Levon And he shall be a good man
He shall be Levon
