Si Hoc Legere Scis Nimium Eruditionis Habes

Monday, October 6, 2008


You look around the human race, you wonder what was God thinking.

God made the mountains, God made the sky,
God made the people, God knows why!
He fixed up the planet, as best as he could.
Then in come the people, and gum it up good!

The first thing ya know, they civilize the foothills,
and everywhere he put hills, the mountains and valleys below!
They come along and take 'em, and civilize and make 'em
a place where no civilized person would go

The first thing you know
The first thing you know

They civilize what's pretty, by puttin' up a city
where nothin' that's pretty can grow!
They muddy up the winter, and civilize it into
a place too uncivilized even for snow.

The first thing ya know...

They civilize left, they civilize right,
till nothin' is left, till nothin' is right!
They civilize freedom, till no one is free!
No one except, by coincidence, me.

The first thing ya know...

The boozer's in prison and the criminal, he isn't,
and only the rascals have dough!
When I see a parson I put my arse in,
the wagon that follows, the tail of a crow!

The first thing ya know… I pick up and blow!
