I Want to Be A Clone


I went to church today and for different reasons I was reminded of an old and brilliant Steve Taylor song:

I'd gone through so much other stuff
that walking down the aisle was tough
but now I know it's not enough
I want to be a clone


I asked the Lord into my heart

they said that was the way to start
but now you've got to play the part

I want to be a clone


chorus:

Be a clone and kiss conviction goodnight
cloneliness is next to Godliness, right?

I'm grateful that they show the way

'cause I could never know the way

to serve him on my own
I want to be a clone

They told me that I'd fall away
unless I followed what they say

who needs the Bible anyway?

I want to be a clone


Their language it was new to me

but Christianese got through to me

now I can speak it fluently

I want to be a clone


(chorus)

Send in the clones
Ah, I kind of wanted to tell my friends and people about it, you know


What?


You're still a babe!
you have to grow! give it twenty years or so
'cause if you want to be one of his got to act like one of us

I love this song. Actually, I like just about whatever Steve Taylor does. This is one of his best.

Thanks.
