423? i got the call
street-corner at the shopping mall
preached to the non-believers: you’re all gonna fall
as they relegate me to the mourners’ hall

leviticus, numbers deuteronomy
recounting all of the prophecies
joshua, judges, 1st samuel
feeling like amos at the citadel
ah—ah-ah

chorus

we gotta praise, praise praise
his holy name
but the non-believers, they all take it in vain

we gotta praise, praise, praise
praise the l-rd
hashem elokeinu, hashem echad

i’m a bible thumper
preaching at you like a seagrave pumper
i’m a bible thumper
preaching at you with my b*ss all b*mpin’

verse 2

‘425 became a teenage prophet
proselytized like a saturn v rocket
the non-believers, they shouted stop it!
as i pull the tanakh from my pocket.

2nd samuel, 1st and 2nd kings
redemption on the cherubim wings
isaiah, jeremiah, ezekiel
amos and amaziah at beth-el.

verse 3

‘429: jewish evangelist
the non-believers they just couldn’t resist
to come at me with their clubs and their fists
i moved so fast they always missed.

hosea, joel, amos, obadiah
going down to sheol in fire
israel, isaac, abraham
preaching from the diaspora to the holy land
