Lord, the light of your love is shining, In the midst of the darkness, shining. Jesus, light of the world, shine upon us, Set us free by the truth you now bring us.Got that? Then let's start, kiddos!
We're doing a rap in da Genome Style,
We're saying all Catholics are vile!
I left New College, and I went back home, I wrote a book attacking Rome - Now I'm dashing off another tome - Yo! Dudes, I'm called da Selfish Gene-Gnome! Selfish gene! My pen is scribbling! Selfish gene! My mouth is dribbling!
Now stretch those arms to left and right,
We're gonna be rappin all da night!
I was getting tired of biology, So I thought I'd switch to theology - I confused it with mythology - But you aint gettin no apology. We got Genome Style! I keep on screaming! We got Genome Style! My head is steaming!
When you're getting old, just a little se-nile,
You gotta sit down to do da Genome Style!
As I was rapping round da Quad, I thought of something rather odd - I said "There prob'ly aint no God." They told me: "You're a silly sod!" Selfish gene! God's a delusion! Selfish gene! That's my conclusion!
Tell your kids of Christ, that's child abuse.
Teach them Genome Style, that's much more use!
Then for many years I lived in hope, Dat I was gonna arrest da Pope And tie him up with a big big rope, But dey all said "Dawkins is such a dope!" Genome Style! Oh I'm misbehaving! Genome Style! Don't tell me I'm raving! Genome Style!
