Jesus was a Capricorn, hippies, etc

In a previous entry I mentioned how some people make me feel superior and "holier-than-thou".  I'm assuming everyone knew I was poking fun at myself, as well as human nature in general.  Anyhow, it got me thinking about a song Kris Kristofferson wrote back in the days of flower children and hippies and Woodstock (I had a four-month-old daughter at the time of Woodstock, wasn't part of the counter-culture and didn't care for rock music).

   

JESUS WAS A CAPRICORN     Kris Kristofferson  

Jesus was a Capricorn
He ate organic food.
He believed in love and peace
And never wore no shoes.
Long hair, beard and sandles
And a funky bunch of friends:
Reckon we'd just nail him up
If he came down again.


Chorus:
'Cause everybody's gotta have somebody to look down on,
Who they can be better than at any time they please.
Someone doin' somethin' dirty decent folks can frown on
If you can't find nobody else, then help yourself to me.


Eggheads cussin' rednecks cussin'
Hippies for their hair.
Others laugh at straights who laugh at
Freaks who laugh at squares.
Some folks hate the Whites
Who hate the Blacks who hate the Klan;
Most of us hate anything that
We don't understand

  Chorus

Ain't that the truth. I don't recall this song. But, it sounds like a hoot! :-) ---Robbie
