Give God a Break

Ricky got riled up about the middle east
Upset by sights and sounds on CNN
They kept sayin' how them Muslims hated freedom
Wasn't no one takin' that away from him
Why he could be attacked at any moment
By missiles armed with anthrax, uranium or box cutters
So he signed up, boot camp
I said wait

Give god a break
He's got a lot on his plate
So give him a rest
from your war and your hate
Ya cut him some slack
and give a little bit back
He could use a helpin' hand
and a paper bag snack

Oh he's really got it hard
You're all stirred up got 'em workin' extra shifts
Droppin' daddy's name, gettin' what you want
Now his desk is swamped with orders for new gifts
So he hired some angels
when keepin' up with runnin' things got hard
He gets an excess of requests, apologies
and the occasional get well card

So give god a break...

Again with the apologies?
Would you just get up off of your knees
Instead of asking him to forgive you
Why not do the ol' guy a favor
and lay off the killin'
Thou shalt not shoot on sight
If he's your official invisible mascot
you could at least have got that one right

So give god a break...everybody
