"This really has to be the last one
Because this is a song that
We don't have anything to follow it
Because it's a real gasser
This song is based on an incident
A recent incident
Maybe you've had the same experience
Driving along a very busy street
In the afternoon traffic
With honking and screaming
And scraping of fenders
And the sweating and swearing
And dust and noise and heat
And you're just glued to the wheel
And it's horrible
And the honking
And somebody's bumping into your bumper
And then you look
At the car next to you
And the guy that's driving along next to you
Is all cool and calm
And he has an expression of Buddha-like serenity
Plastered all over his face
And you wonder why he is so serene
And then, possibly, you look to his dashboard
And there you see, glowing in the afternoon sunlight
About a four inch high plastic icon
That is apparently supplying this serenity to him
Maybe this is how he heard about it
And achieved this kind of satori

Friends and neighbors, hallelujah
What better place for a family altar
Than the top of your television set?"

You can buy a sweet Madonna
Dressed in rhinestones sitting on a
Pedestal of abalone shell
Goin' ninety, I'm not wary
'Cause I've got my Virgin Mary
Guaranteeing I won't go to hell

"All together now"

I don't care if it rains or freezes
