I don't think people would be bored. It's a good song! Here's the copy
I got from the lyrics server at umass.bitnet (to head off requests,
the email address is lyrics@umass.bitnet)


Old Time Religion
- --- ---- --------
(Public Domain)

Chorus:
Oh give me that old time religion
Give me that old time religion
Give me that old time religion
It's good enough for me

Let us pray with Aphrodite
Let us pray with Aphrodite
She wears that see through nightie
And it's good enough for me

Chorus

We will pray with Zarathustra
We will pray just like we used to
I'm a Zarathustra booster
And it's good enough for me

Chorus

We will pray with those Egyptians
Build pyramids to put our crypts in
Cover subways with inscriptions
And it's good enough for me

Chorus

We will pray with those old Druids
They drink fermented fluids
Waltzing naked through the woo-ods
And it's good enough for me

Chorus

Hari-Krishna he must laugh on
To see me dressed in saffron
With my hair that's only half on
And it's good enough for me

Chorus

I will rise at early morning
When the Lord gives me a warning
That the solar age is dawning
And that's good enough for me

Chorus
