Well Jesus Christ was an only child
He went down to the river
And he drank and smiled

And his dad was oh-so-mad
Should have insured that planet 
Before it crashed

Working real hard to make internet cash
Work your fingers to the bone sitting on your ass

I know now what I knew then
But I didn't know then what I know now

Penny found out as her hair was styled
Well you should hide you kids
While the dogs run wild

Jesus Christ was an only child
He went down to the river
And he drank and smiled
And his dad was oh-so-mad
Should have killed that little fucker
Before he even had

Well Jesus Christ was an only child
He went down to the river
And he drank and smiled

And his dad was oh-so-mad
Should have insured that planet 
Before it crashed

Working real hard to make internet cash
Work your fingers to the bone sitting on your ass

Penny found out as her hair was styled
Well you should hide you kids
While the dogs run wild

I know now what I knew then
But I didn't know then what I know now

Well I know now what I knew then, yeah
I know now what I knew then, yeah
I know now what I knew then
But I didn't know then what I know now
