Songfacts®:

  • This comedy number is about a sinner who decides to cover all the angles to ensure that when he dies he'll be certain of going to a better place, so he converts to a smorgasborg of religions. This is a typical Jessie Goldberg song; he uses the same clever device as B.A. Robertson in "Kool In The Kaftan" to allude to the Hare Krishna movement. Pity about the bleating lamb, though. >>
