  Monkey Trial  
 

 

Now they’re saying evolution,
It isn’t really true,
Just a made up story,
That science threw at you.

Creationists are swearing,
The earth is pretty new,
“If it isn’t in the bible child,
You know it can’t be true.”

(Chorus)
It’s like a sad clowns smile,
Like reason gone wild,
Just like a Monkey Trial….

They’re threatening to kill you,
If you print those cartoons,
Don’t mess with the Mullah’s man,
They’ll chase you to the Moon,

They boo you at your funeral,
All in the name of God,
Hatred in the Lords name,
Man that’s really odd,

(Chorus)

Now they tell me that astrology,
Is really just a joke,
Nothing really there to see,
It’s just a puff of smoke,

How can the moment that your born,
Determine your lot?
“I’ve studied the subject,
And you good sir have not.”

How did the world get this crazy?
Tell me, When did peoples thinking get so lazy?
If it’s now on television,
You know it can’t be true,
No one bothers to read these days,
There’s other stuff to do.
It’s a sad, sad situation,
And they haven’t got a clue….

Just like a Monkey Trial…..
Just like a Monkey Trial…..

Now the moral of the story,
Is be careful what you do,
There’s all these crazy people,
With nothing else to do,

The world will keep spinning round,
And things are bound to change,
Let’s hope the day soon comes,
When folks don’t act so strange,

(Chorus)
It’s like a sad clowns smile,
Like reason gone wild,
Just like a Monkey Trial…..

Just like a Monkey Trial…..
Just like a Monkey Trial…..
