    Lyrics

    Ivory Madonna, dying in the dust
    Waiting for the manna coming from the west
    Barren is her bosom, empty as her eyes
    Death a certain harvest scattered from the skies

    Skin and bones is creeping, doesn't know he's dead
    Ancient eyes are peeping, from his infant head
    Politicians argue sharpening their knives
    Drawing up their bargains, trading baby lives

    (Chorus)
    Ivory Madonna, dying in the dust
    Waiting for the manna coming from the west

    Hear the bells are ringing, Christmas on it's way
    Hear the angels singing, what is that they say?
    Eat and drink rejoicing, joy is here to stay
    Jesus son of Mary is born again today

    (Chorus x2)
    Ivory Madonna, dying in the dust
    Waiting for the manna coming from the west
