Bb                                   F              

Life is like an ocean voyage and our bodies are the ships

C                                    A            Dm    Dm/C

And without a moral compass we would all be cast adrift

      Bb                           F

So to keep us on our bearings, the Lord gave us a gift

C7                                    C

And like most gifts you get, it was a book

  F                              Bb

I only read one book, but it's a good book, don't you know

  C7                                                F

I act the way I act because the Good Book tells me so

     F               F7/Eb            Bb/D             Bbm/D

If I wanna known how to be good, it's to the Good Book that I go

         C7                            F

'Cos the Good Book is a book and it is good and it's a book

I know the Good Book's good because the Good Book says it's good

I know the Good Book knows it's good because a really good book would

You wouldn't cook without a cookbook and I think it's understood

You can't be good without a Good Book 'cos it's good and it's a book

And it is good for cookin'

Dm                                      A

I tried to read some other books, but I soon gave up on that

    Bb                                 F              C

The paragraphs ain't numbered and they complicate the facts

  A                                    D

I can't read Harry Potter 'cos they're worshipping false gods and that

    G                                 C

And Dumbledore's a poofter and that's bad, 'cos it's not good

Morality is written there in simple white and black

I feel sorry for you heathens, got to think about all that

Good is good and evil's bad and goats are good and pigs are crap

You'll find which one is which in the Good Book, 'cos it's good

And it's a book, and it's a book

I had a cat, she gave birth to a litter

The kittens were adorable and they made my family laugh

But as they grew they started misbehavin'

So I drowned the little fuckers in the bath

When the creatures in your care start being menaces

    G                                   C

The answers can be found right there in Genesis!


Chapter 6, Verse 5-7!


Swing your partner by the hand


Have a baby if you can


But if the voices your head

Say to sacrifice your kid


To satiate your loving God's


Fetish for dead baby blood


It's simple faith, the Book demands

So raise that knife up in your hand!

  F                                          Bb

Before the Good Book made us good, there was no good way to know

     C                                                    F

If a thing was good or not that good or kind of touch and go

So God decided he'd give writing allegoric prose a go

And so he wrote a book and it was generally well-received

    Bb                               F              C

The Telegraph said, "This God is reminiscent of the Norse."

    Bb                                 F                  C

The Times said, "Kind of turgid, but I liked the bit with horses."

    A                                Dm

The Mail said, "Lots of massacres, a violent tour de force.

       G                                  C

If you only read one book this year, then this one is a book


And it is good, and it's a book!"

Swing your daughter by the hand

But if she gets raped by a man

And refuses then to marry him

Stone her to death!

   Em                                      B                                       

If you just close your eyes and block your ears

         C                          G                 D

To the accumulated knowledge of the last two thousand years

     B                                   Em

Then morally, guess what? You're off the hook

          A                                D

And thank Christ you only have to read one book


Just because the book's contents


Were written generations hence


By hairy desert-dwelling gents


Squatting in their dusty tents


Just because what Heaven said


Was said before they'd leavened bread


Just 'cos Jesus couldn't read


Doesn't mean that we should need


When manipulating human genes


To alleviate pain and fight disease


When deciding whether it's wrong or right


To help the dyin' let go of life


Or stop a pregnancy when it's

Just a tiny blastocyst

B                                      Em

There's no reason why we should take a look

D            C

At any other book


But the Good Book


'Cause it's good

And it's a book


And it's a book

And it's quite good!

G                G7/F

Good is good and evil's bad

C/E                      Cm/E

And kids get killed when God gets mad


And you'd better take a good look

       G            D G
