Humpty Dumpty World Lyrics

by 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
!'m leaving heaven in the morning go ye and do likewise
Get your Coke jug boys bottle up and go
Teil the saints and angels wc'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
