Testo della canzone Jesus Christ You're Tall (Harry Nilsson), tratta dall'album Duit On Mon Dei

Jesus Christ You're Tall - Harry Nilsson

Jesus, I said Jesus, said Jesus Christ you're tall
I bet nobody, I bet nobody,
I bet nobody wanted to dance with you at all
I said Jesus,
I said Jesus there hardly ain't no one here for you at all
I said Jesus, I said Jesus, I said Jesus Christ you're tall

We could dribble our way down a courtship
Get married for a little while
I would shoot a little love inside your basket, mama
And in a little while we'll have a child

He'd be a little boy, he'd be a little boy
But he'll get taller as the time goes by
He'd be a little boy, he'd be a little boy
But pretty soon he'll hear the other boys cry
Because they're saying to him

Jesus, they'll say Jesus, they'll say Jesus Christ you're tall
I bet some day, at least some day I hope he finds a basketball
So maybe a big scout from a big town team
Will come and sign him to the meadow larks
And then someday, someday he'll play as good as Van Dyke Parks

He'll be famous, he'll get married,
He'll be happy with the girl next door
They'll have a little boy,
They'll have a little boy but at birth he'll measure six foot four
Each generation as the time goes by
Will grow and grow until they reach the sky
And finally someday, I say someday,
They'll bump into God and He'll say "Hi"
Then He'll say, Jesus, Jesus look at 'em, Jesus Christ they are tall
Jesus, just look at 'em, Jesus, hey,
You guys want to play a little basketball?

Da-da, da-da, da-da
Da-da, da, da-da, da-da, da-da
Da-da, da-da, da, da, da-da

There'll be a court up in Heaven softer than the softest cloud
They can play all day,
They can play all night, they can play as long as they can play
Be a half-court game until the other boys
Show, it'll be a full court game and then
Then it's over with your high score, it'll be over and then "Amen"
Hey Jesus, oh Jesus, Sweet Jesus Christ you're tall
No, no nobody, no, no nobody, no, no nobody basketball

C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, Jesus
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, Lord
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, with a hook shot, baby
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, shoot that ball
C'mon, Jesus let's sure play it, now
You can play as long as you like
You're in Heaven,
Now Heaven that's the Hell of it, baby, all night long

All night long, all night long
All night long, all night long
All night long, all night long
All night long, all, all, all night long
