Humpty Dumpty World (Ry Cooder)

Our God looked down what did He see The work of His mighty hand Saying if this world should end it wouldn't hinder me As I contemplate the works of man I made man and woman I gave them simple tools And all the channing creatures to keep their company But they desired of things that was against the mIes And television was the worst of all Television was the worst of all Lt's a humpty dumpty world a humpty dumpty wodd A ball of confusion spinning around and around I thought I had built upon a solid rock but it's just a humpty dumpty world Rabble rousing politicians on the TV screen Sowing the seeds of hate and fear I've heard it said you sow and you shall reap Don't come crying to me when you fall Craven minions sent from down below Occupy the highest portals of the land As swift is their dimb as sure is their decline Straight back to heU from whence they came I'm leaving heaven in the morning go ye and do likewise Get your Coke jug boys bottle up and go Tell the saints and angels we're bound for Mexico And laissez le bons temps rouler Lt's a humpty dumpty world a humpty dumpty wodd A ball of confusion spinning around and around I thought I had built upon a solid rock but it's just a humpty dumpty world
