The girl in the pastry shop with the net in her hair Is making a cannoli for you To take on your hiking trip in the woods With your bros that you've known since second grade And you may encounter dragons and ruffians And be called upon to employ your testosterone In a battle for supremacy and access to females Glued to the tv And even if you are victorious You may receive many cuts, bruises, and scrapes And you will require band-aids and antiseptic ointments And tender love and kisses on your stab wounds
And when you come home, she will be there Waiting for you with a fire in her eyes And a big fat cannoli to shove in your mouth And that's why you
Thank god for girls Halle jesu christe From tennessee to la Thank god for girls On your reckoning day You better bow down and pray
She's so big She's so strong She's so energetic in her sweaty overalls

I'm so glad I got a girl to think of Even though she isn't mine I think about her all the day and all the night It's enough to know that she's alive She says I give her sweaty palms She almost had a heart attack The truth is that I'm just as scared I don't know how to act I wish that I could get to know her better But meeting up in real life'll cause the illusion to shatter I carved her name into all the trees I sang a song down on one knee Looking at the underwear page in the sears catalog Like when I was 14 I'm levitating like a magnet turned the wrong way around I'm like an indian fakir trying to meditate On a bed of nails with my pants pulled down
(chorus) Thank god for girls Halle jesu christe From tennessee to la Thank god for girls On your reckoning day You better bow down and pray she's so big she's so strong she's so energetic in her sweaty overalls Thank god for girls (thank god for girls) Thank god for girls (thank god for girls)
God took a rib from adam Ground it up in a centrifuge machine Mixed it with cardamom and cloves Microwaved it on the popcorn setting While adam was like " (woo-hoo) that really hurt! (going off into the tundra) So pissed at god And he started lighting mighty forest fires Stealing osprey eggs Messing with the bees who were trying to pollinate The echinacea Until god said "I'ma smite you with loneliness And break your heart in two" And adam wept and wailed Tearing out his hair Falling on his knees, looked to the sky and said "thank god"
