god shuffled his feet lyrics – crash test dummies

after seven days he was quite tired, so god said:
“let there be a day
just for picnics with wine and bread.”
he gathered up some people he had made
created blankets, and laid back in the shade

the people sipped their wine
and what with god there,
they asked him questions
like: do you have to eat
or get your hair cut in heaven?
and if your eye got poked out in this life
would it be waiting up in heaven with your wife?

god shuffled his feet
and glanced around at them
the people cleared their throats
and stared right back at him

so he said:
“once there was a boy who woke up with blue hair.
to him it was a joy ’til he ran out to warm air…
he thought of how his friends would come to see
would they laugh, or had he got some strange disease?”

god shuffled his feet
and glanced around at them
the people cleared their throats
and stared right back at him

the people sat waiting
out on their blankets in the garden
but god said nothing…
so someone asked him,
“i beg your pardon.
i’m not quite clear about what you just spoke…
was that a parable, or a very subtle joke?”

god shuffled his feet
and glanced around at them
the people cleared their throats
and stared right back at him
