Lyrics

On the Twentieth Century On the Twentieth Century As in flight across the night America the beautiful rolls by All those windows All those people All those lives Across the land, in every home In humble hut or pleasure dome I know there's dirty doings going on The man who seeks the fancy whore The boy who locks the bathroom door Ah yes. I know. There's dirty doings going on And I must spread the word And save you from your fate You must mend your ways Before it's too late! Repent, repent, repent! Stop those dirty little doings Every man and boy and wife Repent, repent, repent! Stop those wicked little wooings That are screwing up your life Walk the narrow path, my friends And keep your thinking pure Try to lift your minds, my friends A notch above the sewer Repent, repent, repent! Reform, reform, reform! Take a nice, icy shower when you're feeling warm In every town we're passing through Beneath a bush, inside the zoo I know there's dirty doings going on The devil tempts us every day The backseat of a Chevrolet Could be the place with Dirty doings going on So heed this simple rule To save you from your doom Do only what you'd do With Mother in the room Repent! Repent! Repent! In the fiery pits of Hades It's too late for your laments Repent! Repent! Repent! There's a fiery pit for ladies And a fiery pit for gents Now's the time to choose, my friends The afterlife you'll fit Waltzing on a cloud, my friends Or turning on a spit Repent! Repent! Repent! And join the angel band! Repent! Repent! Repent! Repent! Repent! For the time is at hand! Like you I once was wild Men shouted, "Oh you kid" A life of shame I led And dirty doings did Until one night I saw the light And heard salvation's call Ta da da da da da da da da da... I'm so glad I didn't hear it Until I did it all Repent! Though sinning may seem swell Reform! Recant! Return! Renounce! Repent or go to hell!
