[repeat intro]

How dare ya, do you think I'll quietly go?
You are much braver than you know
For I can't die
Your staff, your stick, your special cap
They'll protect in hell, what crap
Believe the lie

How dare you be the one to assess
Me, in this God-forsaken mess
You, a man in a purple dress
A man in a purple dress

When you place your frown between my God and prayer
However grand your crown
Or dignified your hair
Men above men or prats in your high hats
You priest, you mullah so high
You pope, you wise rabbi
You're invisible to me, like vapour from the sea

I lovingly mock you noble lords
We all dress up to grant awards
I do that as well
I dare condemn your fashion sense
At least you're not astride a fence
That would not sell
But I will deliver this address
Your soul's condition don't impress
You, a man in a purple dress
A man in a purple dress
