  • This is not a parable
    This is a terrible
    This is a terrible thing

    Yes I will rhyme that, after, after all I've done today
    I have earned my wings

    It happened today. Hooray! Hooray!
    It happened. Hip, hip, hooray!

    We'll leave the allegory to another Bible story
    Out of deference, defiance and choice
    And close in on a promise, after, after all I've done today
    I have earned my voice.

    It happened today. Hooray! Hooray!
    It happened. Hip, hip hooray! Writer/s: MICHAEL E. MILLS, MICHAEL J. STIPE, MICHAEL MILLS, MICHAEL STIPE, PETER BUCK, PETER LAWRENCE BUCK
