Devil Come to Bethlehem - Regina Spektor

Joseph and Mary are so bad.
Kissing in the park, kissing in the park, kissing in the park.
He practices dentistry without a license.
But its alright cause mary read the books and shes got his back.
They're saving up for a trip to France.
Gonna leave the baby with one of the inlaws.
Just long enough to see the eiffel tower and bank.
Wearing a scarf and boots on the airplane.

The Devil come to bethlehem,
with a bible and an alarm clock.
The Devil come to bethlehem,
and he ain't afraid of the dark.

Joseph and Mary are so sad.
Singing in a park in Paris, France,
reading the news, and the ... looks bad.
A pile of empty postcards on their lap.
Nothing bright to write and nothing good to send.

Devil come to bethlehem,
with a bible and an alarm clock.
The devil come to bethlehem,
and he ain't afraid of the
dark-ness is less frightening than the
light-ness is less frightening than the dark.

Joseph and Mary are so Dead.
Oh its been years, its been years, its been many, many years.
All their descendants are long buried and gone,
and their closest blood relatives works in a philadelphia Sears.
Walking on water in his own bathtub,
turning that water to wine.

Devil come to bethlehem,
with a bible and an alarm clock.
The devil come to bethlehem,
and he ain't afraid of the

dark-ness is less frightening than the
light-ness is less frightening than the

dark-ness is less frightening than the
light-ness is less frightening than the dark.
