ORIGINAL SIN

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


             I.  a donation is made
                 in your name, in your name.
                 and a speech has been made
                 in your name, in your name.
                 a scholarship fund
                 is established in your name,
                 in your name, in your name,
                 in your name.

            II.  a Navajo has been removed
                 in your name, in your name.
                 and they've gassed another Jew
                 in your name, in your name.
                 your money's buying guns
                 that the army wants to use
                 in your name, in your name,
                 in your name.

        BRIDGE:  now I know the meaning of original sin.
                 it's not the Garden of Eden.
                 it's gone to Berlin,
                 the Kremlin,
                 Washington,
                 or the capital of whatever country you're in.

           III.  they've been reading my mail
                 in your name, in your name.
                 putting holy men in jail
                 in your name, in your name.
                 the new uniforms
                 all have name tags marked in Braille
                 in your name, in your name,
                 in your name.

                 (repeat bridge)

        ENDING:  in your name,
                 in your name,
                 in your name.
