The Secret of Life Lyrics

(Doyle/Kelley 2016)

 

This is a song called ‘The Secret of Life’.”

 

Chorus

Oh, I’m so confused,

I’m downright obtused,

misused and refused,

Theologically

abused.

 

Verse 1

Some will say virgin births,

pass out bread and fishes,

meat will be Lenten dearths,

but heartfelt Christmas wishes.

 

Verse 2

Moses tablets, God’s word,

infant circumcisms,

money-changers sure to hoard

screens for hers, texts for his-ums.

Play Secret of Life

Chorus

Oh, I’m so confused,

I’m downright obtused,

misused and refused,

Theologically

abused.

 

Verse 3

Get rid of infidels,

many virgins: we long,

one heaven, many hells,

lots of virgins in this song.

 

Verse 4

Hate priest’s indulgences,

redeem the one true church,

no saints, so no fences,

but now scads of true churches.

 

Chorus

Oh, I’m so confused,

I’m downright obtused,

misused and refused,

Theologically

abused.

Play Secret of Life

Bridge

Help, help – some people just don’t know,

hard to get in religious flow,

doubts always continue to grow,

True to Themselves is what they owe.

 

Verse 5

Thousands of deities,

multiple arms & legs,

ceremonies & pieties,

need scorecards, the question begs.

 

Verse 6

Under the tree, slow down,

think deeply, rid that weight,

get yourself a nice gown,

and learn to meditate.

 

Chorus

Oh, I’m so confused,

I’m downright obtused,

misused and refused,

Theologically

abused.

 

Ending

Okay, the title of this song

infers a true solution.

Sorry I took so darn long . . .

since the Big Bang or Creation . . .

There is none, I won’t prolong,

throughout all of our history

it’s meant to be a mystery.

 

But . . . .

Play Secret of Life

If you search, it will come to you,

search every day, keep searching

with a true heart, and if you do,

your truth will be in the searching;

someday it will shake hands with you.

 

Constant searching will surprise you,

someday it will shake hands with you,

this coming up out of the blue:

a mystery for me and you.

 

Me?

I don’t quite know,

but a friend of mine

likes reincarnation . . . .

 

Kind of hope he’s right . . . .

 

So I can come back as Patsy Cline!

Alright!
