The Apocalypse Song

God rest ye merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember when the end is come
It had to be this way
To save us all from going mad
When we were gone astray

 

 Oh tidings of apocalypse and doom
Apocalypse and doom
Oh tidings of apocalypse and doom.

 

 In mayan times in Mexico
The prophecy was writ
And carved upon a sacred stone
In hieroglyphs and grit
Yet which nobody would believe
One bleeding word of it

 

Oh...

 

From NASA and from youtube
A blessed video came
Explaining how theyd got it wrong
And noone was to blame
How that in Mayan times the
Calculations werent the same

 

Oh...

 

Fear not then, said the video
Let nothing you affright
There are no flaming fireballs
Or aliens in sight
So all of those who trusted in
The Mayans can't be right.

 

Oh...

 

The people at those tidings
Rejoiced much in mind
And left their facebooks open
To frape and storm and wind
And went out drinking straightaway
How could they be so blind

 

Oh...

 

And when they came to be outside
Where all the bodies lay
They found themselves in danger
The world in dissarray
And all the people kneeling down
Unto the Lord did pray

 

Oh...

 

Now to the Lord sing SAVE US
All you within this place
And with true fear and brotherhood
Each other now embrace
This holy tide of death and fire
Our cities doth deface

 

Oh tidings of apocalypse and doom
Apocalypse and doom
Oh tidings of apocalypse and doom.
