A tongue-in-cheek apocalyptic folk song about the day the world didn't end...

The Paper

Read the paper this morning
The world's going to end today
There's nothing we can do
There's nothing we can say
Details read
Comes at noon
That must mean this will be over soon
It must be true I read it in The Paper

Now I guess we'll finally see
What that lady on the subway has been talking about
Who's gonna find salvation?
Will all the wretched souls get thrown out?
People cried
Children played
I laughed with a girl who just got laid
She swore to me it was the best time of her life


The sinners ran so very fast to find a good place to hide
The preachers watched them go and stood with a noble pride
Mother's cooked a feast surely fit for a king
I just sit and wait and watch and I wonder
I just sit and wait and sing

You see,I read it in the paper this morning the orld's going to end today
No no there's nothing we can do
There;s nothing we could say
Details read it comes at one
Another whole hour to have some fun
Well it must be true I read it in The Paper
