Pretending Religion Is Secular
(Or Not Knowing The Difference!)

Cliff responds:

I am reminded of a particularly plesant, very early tune by Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention, "Oh No," which, although it first appeared as an instrumental segment on Lumpy Gravy, nevertheless had some interesting lyrics when they finally added vocals and released it on the "loose ends" compilation called Weasels Ripped My Flesh. Methinks this is a direct reply to George Harrison's "Within You Without You," on the Sgt. Pepper album.

Oh no
I don't believe it
You say that you think you know
The meaning of love
 
You say love is all we need
You say
With your love you can change
All of the fools
All of the hate
I think you're probably
Out to lunch

Oh no
I don't believe it
You say that you think you know
The meaning of love
Doyoureallythinkitcanbetold?
You say that you really know
I think
You should check it again
How can you say
What you believe
Will be the key to a
World of love?

All your love
Will it save me?
All your love
Will it save the world
From what we can't understand
Oh no
I don't believe it

And in your dreams
You can see yourself
As a prophet saving the world
The
Words from your lips
I just can't believe
You are such
A fool!
