lyrics

In the beginning
Darkness was upon the face of the deep
And God said “let there be light”
And there was light
And God created Heaven and Earth
And God created the Sun, Moon, and Stars
And God created plants and animals
And he looked at his creation and saw that it was good
Then God created man
Who screwed it all up

At first
Everything was perfect
The whole world
All shiny and new

Then Eve
Got tempted by a serpent
To eat the fruit
That God said was taboo

She fell prey
To the snake’s seduction
A smoother talker
There has never been

So she became
The Eve of our destruction
When she committed
That original sin

So we
Got kicked out of the garden
‘Cause Adam ate it too
Much to his chagrin

Mankind
Got a sentence with no pardon
High price to pay
for that original sin

It’s said
Forbidden fruit tastes sweeter
It’s always tempting
To take a little bite

But it ain’t fair
To be labeled as a cheater
It’s hard to be good
When you don’t know wrong from right

So next time
You tell me that I blew it
And that
I went astray again

I’ll just say
The devil made me do it
It’s on account of that
Original sin

It’s said
Forbidden fruit tastes sweeter
It’s always tempting
To take a little bite

But it ain’t fair
To be labeled as a cheater
It’s hard to be good
When you don’t know wrong from right

So next time
You tell me that I blew it
And that
I went astray again

I’ll just say
The devil made me do it
‘Cause I’ve been tainted
By original sin
