The Lyrics

Nathan (surnamed Bartholomew) was one of the 12 disciples, and later an Apostle, of Jesus.
Brother Matt has the money
Peter, the show
John's always ready
Now Paul says Go

But don't you
Leave out Bartholomew
When you talk about us
Never leave out Bartholomew

Well, when the book of John
Mentions my name
You'll see me in
Nathaniel's fame

Look right here, here's another dude
Last name Thaddeus
First name Jude
Don't you
Leave out Bartholomew
When you talk about us
Never leave out Bartholomew

Let's go, Phil!
Ah, He's my friend

Everyone who's here
Has two names
[abrupt interruption, sung to the tune of "You Got a Friend"]
You can call ou-out my name.
[Resumes]
Last name: Taylor
And the first name's James

Now I am a man with two names too
My name is Nathan
Bartholomew
So don't you
Leave out Bartholomew
Well, when you talk about us
Never leave out Bartholomew

[Spoken, extend interlude]
We got two named James
I can't tell them apart
James one and James two
This can get real confusing.
You try sorting the mail.

Well, now Andrew is funny
Simon slow
Thomas unsteady
Now go, go, go!

But don't you
Leave out Bartholomew
Well, when you talk about us
Never leave out Bartholomew

Well, it's
Nathan
B'tholomew
Nathan
B'tholomew, yeah!
Nathan
B'tholomew, baby
Nathan
B'tholomew
Well, when you talk about us
Never leave out Bartholomew!
