Lyrics

James Bay

I was looking for Jesus at the video store
Picked up a film on how to save my soul
When I brought it home put it in my machine
Much to my surprise God was talking to me

He said “Hey James Bay
The bank of heaven’s in debt”
We need to pay the rent
He said “Hey James Bay
I want to flood the land to build a hydro dam”

Well I asked him lord what was the point?
He said: “Listen Jimmy boy, need you to build a boat”
There are twenty thousand people who need to be moved
And a couple million animals to round out the zoo

We’ll sell electricity to our American friends
And get forty billion
I heard that’s what they’ll spend
I said tell me lord where’s the rest gonna go
He said magazine subscriptions to the people in limbo


He said “Hey James Bay
The bank of heaven’s in debt”
We need to pay the rent
He said “Hey James Bay
I want to flood the land to build a hydro dam”
