THRILL A MINUTE

MUSIC BY BRIDE
LYRICS BY DALE THOMPSON

THERE'S A PEEPING TOM IN THE EYE OF GOD'S HOUSE
SHOOTING INSULIN AS QUIET AS A CHURCH MOUSE
TRIED TO CLEAN HIS BONES FROM A SULFER WELL
TURNED HIS HEAD COULDN'T STAND THE SMELL

A THRILL A MINUTE

LIFE SIZE CRUCIFIX WAS STOLEN FROM THE WALL
THE ORGANIST PLAYED AMAZING GRACE FOR THEM ALL
HOOKER IN A RED SKIRT TESTIFIED AND REPENTED
WHILE THE DEACONS PASSED A SNAKE, STARED AND SQUINTED

A THRILL A MINUTE

PAPER TAXIS FULL OF EYES
CHOCOLATE PULPITS RACING BY
FLOATING BOARDWALKS AND CANDYCANES
CASHMERE PENGUINS WITH SEE THROUGH WINGS

SOMEONE HAD A SPIRIT, RAN UP AND DOWN THE AISLE
WHEN THE SHOUTING STOPPED, THE CHOIR LAY IN A PILE
BELL RINGER PULLED THE ROPE AND WAS LIFTED OFF HIS FEET
PASTOR DISROBED, TOOK THE MONEY TO THE STREET

A THRILL A MINUTE
