John the Revelator 
Put him in a elevator 
Take him up to the highest high
Take him up to the top where the mountains stop
Let him tell his book of lies

John the Revelator 
He's a smooth operator
It's time we cut him down to size
Take him by the hand
And put him on the stand 
Let us hear his alibis 

By claiming God as his only rock
He's stealing a god from the Israelite  Stealing a god from a Muslim, too
 There is only one god through and through 

 Seven lies, multiplied by seven, multiplied by seven again
 Seven angels with seven trumpets
Send them home on the morning train
Well who's that shouting?
John the Revelator!
All he ever gives us is pain
Well who's that shouting?
John the Revelator!
He should bow his head in shame 

Bye-bye
Bye-bye
Bye-bye
Bye-bye

 Seven lies, mulitplied by seven, multiplied by seven again
 Seven angels with seven trumpets
Send them home on the morning train
Well who's that shouting?
John the Revelator!
All he ever gives us is pain
Well who's that shouting?
John the Revelator!
He should bow his head in shame 

Bye-bye
Bye-bye
John the Revelator 
Bye-bye
John the Revelator 
Bye-bye
John the Revelator
