Dr. John

"Babylon"

Babylon
Is represented in the Bible by a stone
Babylon
Is thrown in a river and lost in a storm
Babylon
And never, never, ever again
Will anybody ever wanna call you they home

This is how you're gonna sink, now
I don’t care whatever you may think, now
I'm gonna bring my wrath down on you, now
So you'll feel the weight of truth, now

Gonna drop you like a rock of ages in the sea
And disappear like a pebble in eternity
Nobody wants to save what’s best left dead
A tidal wave is gonna dig your grave

Babylon

Never ever again will you ever hear
The sweet sound of no beautiful singer's voice
No angels playing guitars
Or plucking on they harps
No flutes, no trumpet players
Will be left back of Bouchon
Ain't gonna be no ditch diggers, no construction workers
No pimps, no hustlers, no jaw j*rkers

No city lights, no pretty sights
Will ever shine on you again
No more actors, no Max Factors
Will smog your mind and leave you blind
No politicians, no higher religions
To guide you from the dark
No more Love-Ins, no more Human Be-Ins
Will light up Griffin Park

Babylon
On your hands is the blood of the prophets and all the holy ones
Babylon
Everyone you executed with your machine guns
Babylon
You're bringing about your own destruction, Babylon

I'm putting you down down down down
Where you can never rise up again
And watch your ashes light up the midnight skies once again
After reading the words of this old scroll to you
I hope you all cap back on the message
Lord, that I just told to you
About Babylon
Babylon
