Ha Ha World
Words and Music by: Larry Norman Ha Ha world Every day I used to write you a letter But you never wrote back And you never made me feel any better. Always sitting here fretting and getting confused Halfway desperate for a headline of hope in the news When the telephone rang Well, I spilled it all over my sweater - oh oh! The call is for me and I answered the phone in the kitchen The room was too hot I forgot I was cooking a chicken. It was burning like hell but the stove wasn't on And the voice on the line says, "The chicken is gone" The receiver goes dead and it hums While the plot starts to thicken Oh, oh, yeah - ah! Would I have hung up the phone Had I known the whole room would start swaying? It was instantly cold and I knew why my life wasn't paying I had money and fame but my wealth wasn't wise What good are the coins on a dead man's eyes? And the ringing of chimes in my head Said it's time to start praying Yeah! I’ve been sitting here praying and laying up treasures in Heaven I was home and the front door was locked When the clock struck eleven I heard the bride outside yell "Millennium" Though the sun was still up The twelfth hour has come. The Bible says: Without a vision the people shall perish.
