Latin Quarter - Long Pig

Lyrics

Well the church just caught fire
But it look like no one notice
The padre screaming down the wire
Get a ladder! Get the hoses!
Gonna use up all the water
That got set apart by Moses
The church just caught fire
See the flame leap up like roses
Holy smoke!

And it singe the thief and it burn the liar
And it melt down pain and consume desire
Holy smoke! Church on fire!

The church just caught fire
You can see it from your window
People look up at the spire
While they're going to a go-go
And the ashes spill down
Like the snow that fell on Fresno
The church just caught fire
Going 'Boom' like a volcano
Holy smoke!

And it singe the thief and it burn the liar
And it melt down pain and consume desire
Holy smoke! Church on fire!

When you gonna learn, learn, learn
That we gonna burn, burn, burn

The church just caught fire
And it might not spare the members
And there goes Judas I
Hoping no one here remembers
There's no safety in a kiss
From your Junes to your Novembers
The church just caught fire
Don't go sifting through the embers
Holy smoke!

And it singe the thief and it burn the liar
And it melt down pain and consume desire
Holy smoke! Church on fire!

Song Description

Even if the church could manage to rediscover the truth of all-encompassing love, who these days would even notice?
