" Stairway to Mammon "
Sung to the tune of Led Zeppelin's incredible 20th century classic
" Stairway to Heaven "
There's an apostle that's sure
All that glitters is gold
And we bought him a stairway to mammon
When we toured Ambassador , lo !
The Auditorium was closed
To the saps like us by which it was paid for
We signed away all
Our pay in tithes to be sure
That all H.W.'s words had two meanings
In our fees that he took
And our wallets he'd wring
Sometimes all of our pay to him given
There's a feeling I get
When I look to the west
And I cry as I see my cash leaving
All his thoughts we now see
Were rings of smoke blowing free
From the ass of that deceiver proceeding
In his moneyraking boon
Herbert W. called the tune
" To my Church donate all , beyond reason "
And a new day did dawn
On the Campus so long
And the money-tills echoed with clinking
Oooh , why didn't it make us wonder ?
There was a bustle at the College
As Herbert Armstrong
Did a major pitch for money to glean
He said " There's two paths you can go by " , but in the long run
Fleecing his flock sure was the road he's on
His accountants humming " what a cash flow ! "
And we did not know
As Armstrong called on us to join him
We could not see his blowhard wind blow
And did you know
Our money vanished on the whispering wind
And as we wound on down life's road
To Armstrong's bull we sold our souls
There walks a Savior we all know
Who shone TRUE light and wants to show
How life does not need to be sold
And if you listen very hard
Christ will come to you at last
Where one can build one's humble soul
On Christ's firm Rock , not Herbert's gold
Armstrong conned us....a stairway to mammon .
