Lyrics
These are the verses that I sing.

That Real Old Time Religion.

(Chorus)

Give me that old time religion
Give me that old time religion
Give me that old time religion
It's good enough for me.

Let us pray with Aphrodite,
Let us pray with Aphrodite,
She wears that see-through nightie,
And it's good enough for me.

(Repeat Chorus)

Let us pray with Zarathustra,
Let us pray just like we use ta,
I'm a Zarathustra booster,
And it's good enough for me.

(Repeat Chorus)

Let us pray with them Egyptians,
Build pyramids to put our crypts in,
Cover subways with inscriptions,
And it's good enough for me.

(Repeat Chorus)

Let us pray with dear old Buddha,
'Cause there ain't nobody cuter;
comes in plastic, wood or pewter,
And it's good enough for me.

(Repeat Chorus)

Let us pray with them old druids,
They drink fermented fluids,
Waltzing naked though the woo-ids,
And it's good enough for me.

Hare Krishna, he must laugh on
To see me dressed in saffron,
With my hair that's only half on,
And it's good enough for me.

(Repeat Chorus)

To David Koresh I will pray, so
He will tell me that I may go
To a barbecue in Waco,
And that's good enough for me.

Give me that old time religion
Give me that old time religion
Give me that old time religion
It's good enough for me.
