Chocolate Jesus Songtext
von Tom Waits

Chocolate Jesus Songtext

Don't go to church on Sunday
Don't get on my knees to pray
Don't memorize the books of the Bible
I got my own special way
I know Jesus loves me
Maybe just a little bit more
I fall down on my knees every Sunday
At Zerelda Lee's candy store
Well it's got to be a chocolate Jesus
Make me feel good inside
Got to be a chocolate Jesus
Keep me satisfied
Well I don't want no Abba Zabba
Don't want no Almond Joy
There ain't nothing better
Suitable for this boy
Well it's the only thing
That can pick me up
Better than a cup of gold


See only a chocolate Jesus
Can satisfy my soul
(Solo)
When the weather gets rough
And it's whiskey in the shade
It's best to wrap your savior
Up in cellophane
He flows like the big muddy
But that's ok
Pour him over ice cream
For a nice parfait
Well it's got to be a chocolate Jesus
Good enough for me
Got to be a chocolate Jesus
Good enough for me
Well it's got to be a chocolate Jesus
Make me feel good inside
Got to be a chocolate Jesus
Keep me satisfied

One does not need to go out of their way to see the "Chocolate Jesus" phenomenon in America's citizens, politicians, stores, and churches...(is there even a difference b/t the last two?)
Salvation is bought and sold in america...

America has commoditized religion (hence, chocolate Jesus wrapped in cellophane) -
it has been monetized (sold at "candy store"), exploited (melted and poured over ice cream), and, most importantly, disconnected from its origins (don't get down on my knees to pray... memorize books of bible...got my own special way). Christianity is used and abused (makes the chocolate eater happy and is good enough...but the eater doesn't go out of their way for the religion, just uses for personal comfort).
