    "False Pride" Lyrics

    Okay now, listen to this

    A mystical teacher sat by the seaside

    It was about five o'clock 'coz we heard the free ride

    Anyway, the teacher was talking in stride

    Sitting upon a rock that was wide

    And warning against false pride

    "Come to where I reside!" a woman cried

    And the teacher replied, "Do you serve your fish fried?"

    "Yes," she replied, "With potato salad on the side"

    And the teacher replied, "Well, where do you reside?"

    She said, "Up on the hillside, it's not a far ride

    If you came to have dinner, I would be so gratified"

    The teacher replied, "It's six o'clock, seven o'clock, you decide"

    She replied, "Seven o'clock, do you like stir-fried?"

    She was mystified and felt so dignified

    The teacher was coming to the house where she resides

    So she purified with pesticides

    Called her friends up nationwide

    Some of her friends were tongue-tied, they felt so glorified

    She made steamed fish, baked fish, fish that was fried

    Soup, steamed vegetables, potato salad on the side

    You could smell the bread in the oven far and wide

    Natural juices and water purified

    Organic fruits brought from the countryside

    With silver forks and knives placed side by side

    You could not be dissatisfied

    Looking out the window, staring at the mountainside

    You would have died

    6:59 she's swollen with pride

    As the moment intensified, there's a knock from outside

    She opens the door, for the teacher has arrived

    But to her surprise, it was a bum who cried

    "Please, I smelt the bread from outside

    One piece" and then she replied

    "The teacher is coming, he's soon to have arrived

    You're making me look bad, come on now, step aside!"

    The bum then replied

    "When I say I'm hungry I haven't lied

    Give me some of that chicken that you just fried"

    She replied, "Chicken, fried?

    No that's for the teacher, you're not purified

    Then she slammed the door and went back inside

    Sat on the couch with the TV Guide

    She looked at the clock, it was 7:09, then 7:30

    He still hasn't arrived

    Eight o'clock, she's on the downside

    Nine o'clock, by now she's teary-eyed

    She's pissed off and her anger multiplied

    She cried, then fell asleep dissatisfied

    Next day she woke up, and was preoccupied

    With meeting the mystical teacher who lied

    Where could he hide?

    She ran down by the seaside

    He was there teaching about false pride

    "You lied" she replied, "You lied

    You said you'd be there at seven o'clock, you lied"

    He replied, "No, I have not lied

    I came at 6:59, and you told me to move aside

    I asked for bread and the chicken that was fried

    And you said, that I wasn't purified"

    She replied, "I wasn't notified

    I had no idea that you was the bum that cried"

    And the teacher sighed, then replied

    "This concludes our lesson on false pride"
