Lyrics

The 8th Day

Written By: Sterling Fox

On the 1st day God made whiskey, on the 2nd cigarettes,
To drown all of our sorrows and smoke all our regrets.
On the 3rd day God made famine, pestilence, and plague
To wipe out all the sinners and those who were not saved.

It's a real, real bad world.
But livin' east of a trailer park and somewhere west of Park and 23rd
There's a real, real bad girl.
7 days of tragedy and a rhapsody in blue
On the 8th day, God made you.

On the 4th day God made dinosaurs to tear us limb from limb.
On the 5th day he sent meteors, he said to hell with them.
On the 6th day God made conscience, then said 'no regrets'.
On the 7th day he looked up porn and surfed the internet.

It's a real, real bad world.
But livin' east of a trailer park and somewhere west of Park and 23rd
There's a real, real bad girl.
7 days of tragedy and a rhapsody in blue
On the 8th day, God made you.

(solo)

It's a real, real bad world.
But livin' east of a trailer park and somewhere west of Park and 23rd
There's a real, real bad girl.
7 days of tragedy and a rhapsody in blue
7 days days of calamity with nothing left to prove
7 days of tragedy, with a rhapsody in stone washed black and blue
On the 8th day, God made you.

On the 8th day, God made you.
