Muhamad my friend, it's time to tell the world, we both know it was a girl, back in Bethlehem

Tori Amos lyrics - Muhammad My Friend - 1996

Muhammad my friend
it’s time to tell the world
we both know it was a girl back in Bethlehem
and on that fateful day
when she was crucified
she wore Shiseido Red UN orange and we drank tea
by her side

sweet sweet sweet
used to be so sweet to me

Muhammad my friend
I’m getting very scared
teach me how to love my brothers
who don’t know the law

and what about the deal...

and Moses I know
I know you’ve seen fire
but you’ve never seen fire

until you’ve seen Pele blow
and I’ve never seen light
but I sure have seen gold
and Gladys save a place for me
on your grapevine
till I get my own TV show

ashre ashre ashre ashre
and if I lose my Cracker Jacks at the
tidal wave I got a place
in the Pope’s rubber robe
Muhammad my friend
it’s time to tell the world
we both know it was a girl
back in Bethlehem
