End of the World REM?
Fear in the air, tension everywhere
Unemployment rising fast,
The Beatles' new record's a gas
And the only safe place to live is

'OK Father' the boys replies and off he goes singing 'Jesus was born in a manger'.
The next day the boy happily skips down the road singing 'Jarsus was born in a manger, Jarsus was born in a manger'.
The Priest smiles and says' and do you know why that is my son?' 'Uh huh' says the lad running now down the road... '....because The Protestants own all the houses....
