about

I had a couple of days last summer where I doubted my lack of faith. Maybe I could believe in evolution and in creationist theories, but then I had an epiphany and it took the form of this song.

lyrics

If there was a creator
She would not want you to praise her
She'd want you to cherish each day
Love your sisters and your brothers
And always thank your mother
'Cause she made you this way

Listen to reggae in the morning
Reggae in the evening
You'll stay young that way
Jammin' UB40 with winos at the station
Praying that it won't rain
Listenin' to Ziggy on my headphones
Biggy I can't let go
Toots are droppin' by today
And Desmond and the Deckers
Keep telling me to let go
Not to search for fame

If there was a creator
She would not want you to praise her
Just cherish each day
Love your sisters and your brothers
And always thank your mother
'Cause she made you this way

Oh oh those Isrealites
Coming from Jerusalem
Tearing up Bethlehem tonight
Oh oh gonna see the Wailers tonight
Playing at the stables
Underneath a star so bright

Give me one of them
Give me two of them
Red wine and I will dine them (x2)

If there was a creator
She would not want you to praise her
She'd want you to cherish each day
Love your sisters and your brothers
And always thank your mother
'Cause she made reggae
