SONG OF RELIGIOUS JEST

I DON'T WANT TO JOIN THE CONVENT, I DON'T WANT TO BE A NUN
FOR I AM A MEMBER OF THE KU KLUX KLAN, BROUGHT UP ON WHISKEY AND RUM
WITH A CIGARETTE YOU'LL FIND ME, AND A BOTTLE IN MY HAND.
OH I CAN'T STAND THAT SACRED SINGING, I CAN'T STAND THOSE
CHURCH BELLS RINGING
I DON'T WANT TO BE A NUN.

FOR I WANT TO GET MARRIED, I WANT TO BE A WIFE
I'M SICK AND TIRED OF THIS DAMN SINGLE LIFE.
TALL, DARK, AND HANDSOME; SHORT, SKINNY OR FAT,
I WANT TO GET TO MARRIED, AND THAT IS THAT.
