Oh Lord (Wake the Dead)

You better look down and shake your head
Look down and shake your head
Get down and shake a leg
Get down and shake a leg
Jump down and wake the dead
Jump down and wake them
Oh lord, Oh lord.

You better look down and shake your head
Look down and shake your head
Get down and shake a leg
Get down and shake a leg
Jump down and wake the dead
Jump down and wake them
Oh lord, Oh lord.
Oh lord, can it be true?
These things they say about you
Ooh, what am I to do?
Oh lord.

When I looked out of my window,
Everything I see
Is hate and murder,
Stabbin’, stealin’,
Rape and larceny
Well I heard that you
Can stop it, lord,
But you just let it be
It’d make ya look down
And shake your head
They act like rabid monkeys
Chained up in a zoo
And the bible says that
Each of us was modeled after you
Well hell that should offend you,
Lord, if it does here’s what you do:

You ought to look down and shake your head
Look down and shake your head
Get down and shake a leg
Get down and shake a leg
Jump down and wake the dead
Jump down and wake them
Oh lord, oh lord.
Oh Lord,
Can you see,
What this has done to me
I’ve lost my faith with thee…
Woe is me.

Well the preacher on the TV,
Tells me if I’m poor
I should give him all my money,
‘Cause the Lord’ll give me more
Well, I saw him wink
And drag a sack of cash
On out the door
Well, he bought himself a Cadillac
And now I got less than before!
Look down and shake your head
Look down and shake your head
Get down and shake a leg
Get down and shake a leg
You better jump down and wake the dead
Jump down and wake them
Oh lord, Oh lord.

You oughta look down and shake your head
Look down and shake your head
Get down and shake a leg
Get down and shake a leg
Well jump down and wake the dead
Jump down and wake them
Oh lord, oh lord.
They say you’ll bring down Armageddon
They say you’ll break the Seventh Seal
Well, I hope you bring down Armageddon
‘Cause through the fire and brimstone
At least I’ll finally know you’re real!

Real, Real, Real, oh!
Oh Lord, how can it be?
That you won’t talk to me,
Oooh, woe. Woe is me.
Poor me!

Look down and shake your head
Look down and shake your head
Get down and shake a leg
Get down and shake a leg
You better jump down and wake the dead
Jump down and wake…
Oh lord, Oh lord.

Look down and shake your head
Look down and shake your head
Get down and shake a leg
Get down and shake a leg
You better jump down and wake the dead
Jump down and wake them
Oh lord, Oh lord.
People on the street
They’re ugly, mean and rude
They’re bumping into me,
They’re bumping into you.
They never say “Excuse me!”
Or “How do you do?”
Oh Lord!

I swear to you the next fool
Who come shootin’ his mouth off
‘Bout his almighty friend up in the sky
He’s gonna get a mighty load of me
When I sound off
In the way of a kick
Right in his eye
You’re like my landlord
In this hovel where I sit
I always pay my rent
And you ain’t never fixing shit

“Shut yo’ mouth!”
You should take a look around, lord,
Your world is just the pits
Oh lord, Oh lord
