THE RING

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


        CHORUS:  there is a ring in your nose.
                 there is a ring in your nose.

             I.  don't abort, don't divorce,
                 don't eat pork, visit Lourdes,
                 speak Latin, Hindu,
                 Arabic, Hebrew,
                 say hail Mary,
                 hare Krishna.
                 sit in silence,
                 speak in tongues.

                 (repeat chorus)

                 (instrumental passage)

                 (repeat chorus again)

            II.  avoid Freud, shave your head,
                 grow a beard, go celibate.
                 eat wafers, eat kosher,
                 eat matzo, no liquor.
                 shun the sinner,
                 love your brothers.
                 burn incense.
                 convert the others.
                 visit Mecca, the Ganges,
                 Israel.  light candles.
                 take peyote.
                 don't use drugs.

                 (repeat chorus)

        ENDING:  and the ring
                 has a name.
                 and the name
                 of the ring
                 is eternal life,
                 eternal life.
