Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator 
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator 
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator wrote the book of the seven seals

Who's that writin', John the Revelator 
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator 
Well, who's that writin', John the Revelator wrote the book of the seven seals

You know God walked down in the cool of the day, and called Adam by his name
And he refused to answer, because he was naked and ashamed 

Who's that writin', John the Revelator 
Who's that writin', John the Revelator 
Who's that writin', John the Revelator wrote the book of the seven seals

You know Christ had twelve apostles, and three he laid away
He said "Watch with me one hour, while I go yonder and pray"

Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator 
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator 
Who's that writin', John the Revelator wrote the book of the seven seals

Who's that writin', John the Revelator 
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator 
Who's that writin', John the Revelator wrote the book of the seven seals

 Christ came on Easter morning, Mary Margaret was down to see
"Go tell my disciples, to meet me in Galilee"

Tell me who's writin', John the Revelator 
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator 
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator wrote the book of the seven seals

Who's that writin', John the Revelator 
Who's that writin', John the Revelator 
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator wrote the book of the seven seals
