All American Prophet

Album: The Book of Mormon soundtrack (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • "All American Prophet" is the seventh song from the 2011 musical The Book Of Mormon. In just over 6 minutes it tells the story of Joseph Smith, the founder of the Mormon religion. As might be expected, the song is humorous, poking fun at the quirks of the faith.

    Performed by elders Cunningham and Price with the prophet Joseph Smith, the Angel Moroni and the Company, it includes a dance routine.
  • Like the rest of the songs in the show, "All American Prophet" is credited to Trey Parker, Robert Lopez, Matt Stone - words and music all three. Parker and Stone are the masterminds behind the American TV show South Park. >>
