Regina Spektor - Baby Jesus

You know that statue
That statue of baby jesus
In the window
In the window of the 99 cent store
Last night I saw the owner kiss it
And whisper in its ear
I was walking home from walgreen's
And he did not hear me see him
And on the
Very very next morning
All the subway cars were hallelu-leluing
Welcome back the baby king, the baby king
All the believers they were smiling
And winking at each other
I could honestly say I was scared for my life

They said, all the non-believers they get to eat dirt
And the believers get to spit on their graves...

You know that statue
That statue of baby jesus
In the window
In the window of the 99 cent store
They've been showing it on the news
It was thirty times its size
With a megaphone and a heart-shaped bruise
It was hovering in the skies
And all the
Subway cars were hallelu-lelu-leluing, hallejuah
Welcome back the baby king, the baby king
All the believers they were smiling
And winking at each other
I could honestly say I was scared for my life

They said, all the non-believers they get to eat dirt
And the believers get to spit on their graves...
Believe!...

You know that statue
That statue of baby jesus
In the window
In the window of the 99 cent store
When I woke up I ran and bought it
And locked it in my closet
With a little bread and water
And a flashlight and a first aid kit til he grows
