jesus and mary lyrics – guster

“jesus and mary”

come on dear friends
come gather round the mountain
drink from the fountain
tell your lovers it’s time to go
tell them the tale when sodom met gomorrah
the end days are coming the mullah send the way out the sun

the drummers drum and the motors hum
and the trumpet players make the chords
sound wakes devil down below

jesus and mary and juliet and romeo
in a movie on tv plays seven days a week
turn off that radio we don’t wanna hear about it anymore

[whistle]

kill or be killed the hunters and the hunted
seems like we’re running 2000 years and still under control
so let’s go start a war like fdr and eleanor
these were the ways of the men before
the ammunition and soldiers and guns

lovers love and the motors moan
and the trumpet players blow the h*rn
sound wakes the devil down below

jesus and mary and juliet and romeo
in a movie on tv plays seven days a week
turn off that microphone we don’t wanna talk about it anymore

sunned ends with a big amen and the preachers take it door to door
sound shakes the devil down below

jesus and mary and juliet and romeo
are in a movie on tv plays seven days a week
turn off that telephone we don’t wanna know about it anymore

so maybe let’s go start a war
