    "Beggar's Oil" Lyrics

    A mustard seed is (has been said)
    All that men will need
    A filthy boy in a bowery lane
    Under the times in a drowning rain
    Stealing bits of sleep again
    Has heard this comon creed

    Grows into the tallest tree
    To cool down the sinner's heat
    I know this man, he's much like I
    A doubter's cusp, a braggart's pyre
    Sweltering in brandy-mire
    And selling bitter meat

    Exemplary of faith I guess
    Starts with naught but soil
    Upon the shoes of wayward men
    Ministers will not befriend
    Smite the temple yet again
    Spill their precious oil

    I've thrown my seed out the window
    Down in the dirt below
    I'll water it with my distrust
    My blatant well-worn rough-hewn crust
    I'll mojo it with voodoo dust
    And pray that it will grow
