Atheists Don't Have No Songs--Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers

Here's the amazing and talented Steve Martin performing with the Steep Canyon Rangers at the New Orleans Jazzfest:



Atheists Don't Have No Songs

Christians have their hymns and pages
Hava Nagila for the Jews
Baptists have the rock of ages
Atheists just sing the blues.
Romantics play Claire de Lune
Born agains sing "He is risen"
But no one ever wrote a tune

For godless existentialism.
 For atheists
There’s no good news
They’ll never sing a song of faith.
 For atheists
They have a rule

The “he” is always lowercase
The “he” is always lowercase.

Some folks sing a Bach cantata
Lutherans get Christmas trees,
Atheist songs add up to nada
But they do have Sundays free.

Some folks sing they sing to heaven
Coptics have the books of scrolls

Numerologists can count to seven
Atheists have rock and roll.

For atheists
There’s no good news
They’ll never sing a song of faith.
 In their songs

They have a rule
The “he” is always lowercase.
The “he” is always lowercase.

Catholics dress up for mass
And listen to Gregorian chants.

Atheists just take a pass
Watch football in their underpants.Watch football in their underpants.

Atheists don't have no songs!
