Tom Waits - Chocolate Jesus

English

Chocolate Jesus

I don't go to church on Sunday
Don't get on my knees to pray
Don't memorize the books of the Bible
I got my own special way
 
I know Jesus loves me
Maybe just a little bit more
I fall down on my knees every sunday
At Zerelda Lee's candy store
 
Well it's got to be a chocolate Jesus
Make me feel good inside
Got to be a chocolate Jesus
Keep me satisfied
 
Well I don't want no Abba-Zaba1
Don't want no Almond Joy2
There ain't nothing better
Suitable for this boy
 
Well it's the only thing
That can pick me up
Better than a cup of gold
See only a chocolate Jesus
Can satisfy my soul
 
When the weather gets rough
And it's whiskey in the shade
It's best to wrap your savior
Up in cellophane
He flows like the Big Muddy3
But that's OK
Pour him over ice cream
For a nice parfait
 
Well it's got to be a chocolate Jesus
Good enough for me
Got to be a chocolate Jesus
Good enough for me
 
Well it's got to be a chocolate Jesus
Make me feel good inside
Got to be a chocolate Jesus
Keep me satisfied
