Lyrics

The Temple of Serious Fun

Laughing Jack and joking Jane
Got me to come in out of the rain
Outside the church door
Sorrow and misfortune
Were a down pour

Here in the temple
Of serious fun
Sing with the choir
And all smile as one
Lay down your burden
With the setting sun
Let fun be done

I was drunk on sorrow,
Drunk on fear
They got no use
For that here
And when I dared
Read from Ecclesiastes
The fun turned nasty

Here in the temple
Of serious fun
Sing with the choir
And all smile as one
Lay down your burden
With the setting sun
Let fun be done

I left the church
Wandered among the graves
The ghosts know me there
Know I’m already saved
The Lilies of the Field
Considered the past
As the Song of Solomon
Blew through the grass

Here in the temple
Of serious fun
Kneel at the altar
And all laugh as one
Bow down your head
When you get your crumbs
Let fun be done
