Song lyrics
And the sign says, "Long-haired freaky people
Need not apply."
So I tucked my hair up under my hat
And I went in to ask him why
He said, "You look like a fine outstanding young man
I think you'll do."
So I took off my hat, I said, "Imagine that!
Huh, me workin' for you!"
Ooh

Signs, signs, everywhere a sign
Fuckin' up the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?

And the sign says, "Anybody caught trespassing
Will be shot on sight."
So I jumped the fence and I yelled at the house, "Hey!
What gives you the right
To put up a fence to keep me out
Or to keep Mother Nature in?
If God was here, He'd tell it to your face,
'Man, you're some kind of sinner!'"

Signs, signs, everywhere a sign
Fuckin' up the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?

Oh!

Oh say now, mister, can't you read?
You got to have a shirt and tie to get a seat
You can't watch, no, you can't eat
You ain't supposed to be here

And the sign says, "You got to have a membership card
To get inside."
Huh!

The sign says, "Everybody welcome
Come in, and kneel down and pray."
But then they passed around a plate at the end of it all
And I didn't have a penny to pay
So I got me a pen and a paper
And I made up my own fuckin' sign
I said, "Thank you, Lord, for thinkin' 'bout me
I'm alive and doin' fine."
Ooh

Signs, signs, everywhere a sign
Fuckin' up the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?

Signs, signs, everywhere a sign
Fuckin' up the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?

I almost became a minister once. You do know that they get paid for doing weddings and funerals eh? Not bad either. About $120 per rounded up hour. They don't get a lot of work in it, but really if they get 2 hours per week than they can live off that. Also Catholic priests aren't bad since I don't believe they can get married so no kids so they don't have a lot of expenses and most of them live in a house attached or on the church property and it gets paid for by the church as well as the government does give a little extra to churches...at least in Canada, where I am. I don't know if they get anything extra anywhere else.
Anyway, great song none the less. It's one of the very few songs that I prefer over the original

Great song, but i dont agree with the last paragraph. What's wrong about giving money to church? What do they think, priests don't eat? Or that people who make the housing there dont get paid? F***ing ignorant a**holes.
P.S.: I'm not a priest
