Muhammad My Friend – Tori Amos

We both know it was a girl back in Bethlehem.
And on that fateful day when she was crucified,
She wore Shiseido Red and we drank tea by her side.
It’s sweet… sweet… sweet… it used to be so sweet to me, well.

Muhammad my friend, I’m getting very scared.
Teach me how to love my brothers, who don’t know the law.
And what about the deal on the flying trapeze?
Got a peanut butter hand.
But honey do drop in at the Dew Drop Inn.
I said sweet… sweet… sweet… between the boys and the bees.
It’s sweet-sweet-sweet, sweet… sweet… yes,
Between the boys and the bees.

Moses I know, I know you’ve seen fire,
But you’ve never seen fire until you’ve seen the Pele blow.
And I’ve never seen light, but I sure have seen gold.
And Gladys save a place for me on your grapevine,
‘Till I get my a-own, honey, TV show.

Ashre, ashre, ashre, ashre.
And if I loose my Cracker Jacks at the tidal wave,
I got a place in the Pope’s rubber robe.
I said, Muhammad my friend, it’s time to tell the world.
We both know it was a girl back in Bethlehem.
We both know it was a girl back in Bethlehem.
We both know it was a girl back in Bethlehem.
