    Intro:

    You say you found Jesus Christ
    He's the only one
    You say you've found Buddha
    Sittin' in the sun
    You say you found Mohammed
    Facin' to the East
    You say you found Krishna
    Dancin' in the streets

    Well there's somethin' missing in this God Almighty stew
    And it's your mother (your mother, don't forget your mother, lad)
    You got to serve yourself
    Ain't nobody gonna do it for you
    You got to serve yourself
    Ain't nobody gonna do it for you
    Well you may believe in devils and you may believe in lords
    But if you don't go out and serve yourself, lad, ain't no room service here

    It's still the same old story
    A bloody Holy War
    A fight for love and glory
    Ain't gonna study war no more
    A fight for God and country
    We're gonna set you free
    We'll put you back in the Stone Age
    If you won't be like me - get it?

    You got to serve yourself
    Ain't nobody gonna do for you
    You got to serve yourself
    Ain't nobody gonna do for you
    Well you may believe in devils and you may believe in lords

    'But Christ, you're gonna have to serve yourself and that's all there is to it.
    So get right back here it's in the bloody fridge. God, when I was a kid.
    Didn't have stuff like this, TV-fuckin' dinners and all that crap.
    You fuckin' kids are all the fuckin' same! Want a fuckin' car now...
    Lucky to have a pair of shoes!'

    You tell me you found Jesus Christ
    Well that's great and he's the only one
    You say you just found Buddha
    Sittin' on his ass in the sun
    You say you found Mohammed
    Kneeling on a bloody carpet facin' the East
    You say you found Krishna
    With a bald head dancin' in the street ('Well, Christ, now you're
    being heard')

    You got to serve yourself
    Ain't nobody gonna do for you
    You got to serve yourself
    Ain't nobody gonna do for you ('that's right, lad, you better get that straight
    into your fuckin' head')
    You got to serve yourself ('you know that, who else is gonna do it for you, it
    ain't me I tell you that')
    Well, you may believe in Jesus, and you may believe in Marx
    And you may believe in Marks and Spencer's and you may believe in bloody
    Woolworths
    But there's something missing in this whole bloody stew
    And it's your mother, your poor bloody mother ('she worked for you in the
    back bedroom, full of piss and shit and fuckin' midwives. God, you can't
    forget that awful moment, you know. You should have been in the bloody
    war, lad, and you would know all about it. Well, I'll tell you something.')

    It's still the same old story
    A Holy bloody War, you know, with the Pope and all that stuff
    A fight for love and glory
    Ain't gonna study no more war
    A fight for God and country, and the Queen and all that
    We're gonna set you free
    Bomb you back into the fuckin' Stone Age
    If you won't be like me, you know, get down on your knees and pray

    Well there's somethin' missing in this God Almighty stew
    And it's your goddamn mother you dirty little git, now
    get in there and wash yer ears!




    NOTE: "[This song] was right after Dylan's song [...] "You
    Gotta Serve Someone", you know - the lord, I suppose, you know.
    So then he was kind of upset about that and it was a dialogue,
    you know. In that sense it's fun, I mean you can hear it was
    fun. He wasn't seriously against it. He showed his anger in
    a way but also [...] his sense of humour." (Yoko Ono, 1998)
