The way of life is tough these days, it's hard to get along
But Jesus came and He talked to me and that's why I wrote this song
He told me of my brothers in a far and distant land
He said that it's gettin' crowded on Earth
And it's time we made some plans, time we made some plans

He said overpopulation is the problem of today
There's too many children on the Earth and more on the way
If you don't start some birth control, then you won't last too much longer
It's best that we let it save our souls
So we can get much stronger, get much stronger, ah

I'm afraid of overpopulation
I don't want to die of suffocation
The world is full of pollution
And Jesus is the solution

He said we're gettin' near the end and I'm as close as you are
If you take Jesus as a friend, you're gonna' be a big star
Star that shines in the sky above, a light you cannot sever
You will be with Him above
And you will shine forever, shine forever, ah

He's tryin' to be with me
He's tryin' to set me free
He wants to be with you
So you won't have to die
