All-American Prophet

Original songwriter: Robert Joseph Lopez, Matthew E Stone, Trey Parker

You all know the Bible is made of testaments old and new

You've been told it's just tose two parts or only one if you're a Jew

But what if I were to tell you there's a fresh third part out there

Wich was found by a hip new prophet who had a little

Donny Osmond flair

Have you heard of the all-American prophet

The blonde haired blue eyed voice of God

He didn't come from the middle East like those other holy men

No God's favorite prophet was

All-American

I'm gonna take you back to

Biblical times eighty twenty three

An American man named Joe livin' on a farm in the holy land of Rodchester New York

You meant he Mormon prophet Joseph Smith

That's right that young man spoke to God

He spoke to God

And God said Joe people really need to know that the Bible isn't two parts

There's a part three to the Bible, Joe and I God have anointed you

To dig up this part three that is buried by the tree on the hill in your backyard

Wow God says go to you backyard and start digging that makes perfect sense

Joseph Smith went up to that hill and dug where he was told

And deep in the ground

Joseph found shining plates of gold

What are these golden plates

Who buried them here and why

Then appeared an angel his name was Moroni

I am Moroni

The all-American angel my people lived here long long ago

This is the history of my race please read the words within

We were Jews who met with Christ but we were all-American

But don't let anybody see these plates except for you they are only for you to see

Even if people ask you to show the plates to them don't

Just copy them onto normal paper

Even thought this might make them question if the plates are real or not

This is sort of what

God is going for

Joseph took the plates home and wrote down what he found inside

He turned those plates into a book then he rushed into town and cried

Hey God spoke to me and gave me this blessed ancient tome

He hath commanded me to publish it and stick it in every home

Wow so the Bible is actually a trilogy

And the Book of Mormon is

Return of the Jedi

I'm interested

Now many people didn't believe the prophet Joseph Smith

They thought he'd made u this part three that was

Buried by a tree on the hill in his backyard but Joe said

This is no lie

I speak to God all the time

And he told me to head west

So I'll take my part three from the hill with the tree

Feel free if you'd like to come along with me

To the promised land paradise on the west coast

Nothing but fruit and fields as far as the eye can see

Have you heard of the all-American prophet

He found a brand new book about Jesus Christ

We're following him to paradise we call ourselves Mormons

And our new religion is all-American

Wow how much does it cost

The Mormons kept on searching for that place to settle down

But every time they thought they'd found it they got kicked out of town

And even though people wanted to see the golden plates

Joseph never showed 'em

I have maggots in my scrotum

Hum, okay

Well anyway now comes the part of our story that gets a little bit sad

On the way to the promised land

Mormons made people mad

Joseph was shot by and angry mob and knew he'd soon be done

You must lead the people now my good friend Brigham Young

Oh God why are you letting me die

Without having me show people the plates

They'll have no proof I was telling the truth or not

They'll have to believe it just 'cos, oh, I guess that's kinda

What you were going for, woah

The prophet Joseph Smith died for what he believed in

But his followers they kept on heading west

And Brigham Young led them to paradise

A sparkling land in Utah they called Salt Lake City

And there the Mormons multiplied and made big

Mormon families

Generation to generation until finally they made me

And now it's my job to lead you where those early settlers were lead long ago

Have you heard of the all-American prophet

Kevin Price

The next in line to be the voice of God

He's gonna do something incredible

And be Joseph Smith again 'cos Kevin Price the prophet is

All-American

If you order now we'll also throw in a set of steak knives

All-American
