THE LESSON OF ADAM
I’m probably right in assuming,
The most people never believed,
There was ever a Garden of Eden
Or a couple called Adam and Eve.
It’s not really credible is it
In fact, it just doesn’t compute
That the guy lost his paradise garden
Just because he ate one piece of fruit.
Fair enough he was told that he couldn’t
He was told eating apples was banned
But the guy just gave into temptation
Sure the apple was growing on his land.
So the Adam and Eve stuff is nonsense
It’s a story, that’s all, nothing more
It’s a fairy tale, fiction, a fable,
And best if it’s simply ignored.
Only, well, have a look at our planet
It’s currently not in great nick
Our climate is pretty well ruined
And millions of people are sick.
If you think about what our earth looked like
Before human beings arrived
It had blue skies and crystal clear oceans
And nature and animals thrived.
All we had to do was be careful.
Look after our beautiful earth
But sadly, our greed was too powerful
And we treated our planet like dirt
Now, we just watch the clock ticking
Pandemics, melting ice at the poles
Hurricanes, sea levels rising
We wonder if we’ve lost control.
We had such a beautiful planet
We just had to mind it that’s all
But mankind just gave in to temptation
And greed. Now we head for a fall.
Why didn’t God warn us I wonder
That’s the thing that I really can’t fathom
Or maybe we just didn’t listen
And we’re all just as stupid as Adam
