God gave Moses a few little rules and I want you to pass 'em around
Take a look at those old fools, I can't believe the shit is going down
You're supposed to have a good time but I think you take it little too far
Watchin' your life in vista-vision, a monkey on your back, a brand new car

Well, Shakespeare threw down his pencil
Said, "I think, I'm gonna start layin' brick
Too much of this Romeo stuff, enough to make anybody sick
'To be or not to be', I mean what's that supposed to mean
I'm changin' my image tomorrow, be a groupie, make the scene"

Pray for me if you want to, if you don't want to, don't stay
Somebody shot the Vicar and the minister's on his way
Sellin' open legs on the corner, punchin' Judy, workin' uptown
Pray for me if you want to before some fool shoots you down

Well, the man in the cage is always for freedom
The way of the transgressor is hard
Cain and Abel, and their old man playin' croquet in the back yard
Two guys beat up the sole survivor, up beat on the back street
I don't really want to get involved, won't someone help me to my feet

Pray for me if you want to, if you don't want to, don't stay
Somebody shot the Vicar and the minister's on his way
Sellin' open legs on the corner, punchin' Judy, workin' uptown
Pray for me if you want to before some fool shoots you down
