Come all you sons of piety and listen to my dirge,
Some say it's just a pack of lies, but it's gospel, every word.
D G D
When God made father Adam, well, He laughed and danced and sang
And He sewed up Adam's belly with a little piece of wang.
And when the God had finished He found He'd measured wrong
For when that wang was knotted it was just a bit too long
God said, "I've made a blunder here but I think I'll let it hang"
So He left on Adam's belly, that little piece of wang.
And when the God made Mother Eve, it fairly made Him snort
For He found the wang He sowed with, it was just a bit too short
God said, "It leaves a bit of a gap, but I don't give a damn.
She can fight it out with Adam for that little piece of wang."
So ever since that distant day when the human race began
There's been a constant battle between the woman and the man.
but if you ask the woman and the man, they would agree
They don't care if that battle lasts through all eternity.
