Switching Places

Hey, God, let’s switch places!
You take mine.
and I’ll take yours - I’ll be the God.
It’s not so hard as it seems,
You just have to lose some weight,
Change your hair, make it longer,
Wear some keds, smoke three packs a day.
it’s a little boring, but
you’ll have to play smart
(Don’t ruin my image, I've worked so hard for it) .

You’ll wake up in old campus every morning,
and time after time will get calls
from your temporary father (my former father) ,
it’s O.K. if he lectures you
for not working,
you’ll get used to it.
