Give Me That Old Time Religion

Give me that old time religion
Give me that old time religion,
Give me that old time religion,
It's good enough for me.

Let us worship Aphrodite
In her silky see-through nightie
Though she's mean and somewhat flighty
She's good enough for me.
Let us sacrifice to Isis
She will help us in a crisis
And she hasn't raised her prices
And that's good enough for me.

Let us sacrifice to Kali
Let us worship her, by golly
To ignore her would be folly
And that's good enough for me.
Let us worship Zarathustra
Let us worship like we used to
I'm a Zarathustra booster
And that's good enough for me.
Let us all bow down to Buddha
There's no other God who's cuter
Comes in copper, brass, and pewter
And that's good enough for me.
Let us travel to Valhalla
In Volkswagens, not Impalas
Singing "Deutschland Uber Alles"
And that's good enough for me.

Let us pray with dear old Buddha 
'Cause there ain't nobody cuter 
Comes in plastic, wood and pewter 
And that's good enough for me 
 
Let us pray with those Egyptians 
Built pyramids to put their crypts in 
Covered subways with inscriptions 
And that's good enough for me 
 
Let us pray with good old Loki 
Let us pray with good old Loki 
He thinks Thor's a little hokey 
And that's good enough for me 
 
Let us pray with those old Druids 
They drank fermented fluids 
Waltzing naked through the woo-ids 
And that's good enough for me 
 
Hare Krishna, he must laugh on 
To see me dressed in saffron 
With hair that's only half-on 
And that's good enough for me 
 
Let us pray with lovely Venus 
Of the gods she is the meanest 
She once bit me on the... elbow 
But that's good enough for me
