The Lyrics

#7 of my HTDAAB parody album. I saw a time magazine article with the title 'CAN BONO SAVE THE WORLD' about 2 years ago and thought it would be fun to portray him as God. After all, it is his career aspiration, otherwise, how could you possibly explain POPMART?
Take these shoes
walking all the world to solve the issues
Take these shoes,
give them a kiss

Take this man,
geriatric pop-star, made in Ireland
take this man,
and make him God

Take this God
stranded in some skin and bones
Take this God
and homage pay (pay)

Bono, Bono, how much longer till the forests go?
Bono, Bono, save the whales and eskimo!

Tell Iran,
Nuclear Weapons not to carry!
Tell Iran,
don't make a fist!

Take on Bush!
Debt relief and trade for Africa!
Take on Bush!
he's on our list!

Bono, Bono, take the global warming issue on!
Bono, Bono, why can't you save the world?

still need to save the world
the time is coming now

Your efforts are a drop in the ocean
Your love is like a drop in the ocean
Your love is like a drop in the ocean


Bono, Bono, team with Geldof take on Famine please!
Bono, Bono, Sting does more to save the trees!

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Take this fan
this fan shouldn't live life on a pill
Take this fan, if it be your will

take this cloud, and ride it into heaven
take this fan, this praying fan, take me now
and make me safe

What....? Oh was kind of funny. I like the original song better though. Sorry, but I worship Yahweh and...well...the song should remain about Him. 5,5,5 for catching my attention though.

I am a very cynical person. However, why should we lambast somone who has truly struggled and has always been a person to question their life and purpose? You must be a republican baptist. Then again I judge as do you. Take this life and make it Real. care about more than guns and war--care about children and the future. leave our planet better take this life and make it count for something.

R seems to think I am 'lambasting' him. I am simply parodying. If you think I am a right-wing nut-job, you need to read my other parodies....
