On the twentieth century, on the twentieth century
As in flight across the night America the beautiful rolls by
All those windows!  All those people!  All those LIES!

Across the land, in every home
In humble hut or pleasure dome
I know there’s dirty doings going on.

The man who seeks the fancy whore
The boy who locks the bathroom door
Ah yes, I know, dirty doings going on.

And I must spread the word 
and save you from your fate
You must mend your ways 
before it’s too late

Repent! Repent! Repent!
Stop those dirty little doings every man and boy and wife!
Repent! Repent! Repent!
Stop those wicked little woo-ings that are screwing up your life.

Walk the narrow path my friend 
and keep your thinking pure
Try to life your minds my friends 
a notch above the sewer!

Repent! Repent! Repent! Reform! Reform! Reform!
Take a nice icy shower when you’re feeling in warm..

Aya da-da-da-da-da-dah

In every town we’re passing through 
beneath a bush, inside the zoo
I know there’s dirty doings going on

The devil tempts us everyday
The back seat of a Chevrolet
Could be the place dirty doings going on

So heed this simple rule to save you from your doom
Do only what you’d do with Mother in the room!

In the fiery pits of Hades is too late for your laments!
There’s a fiery pit for ladies and a fiery pit for gents!

Now’s the time to choose my friends the afterlife you’ll fit
Waltzing on a cloud my friends or turning on a spit!

Repent! Repent! Repent!
Join the Angel band
Repent! Repent! Repent! Repent!
Repent for the time is at hand…

Like you I once was wild
Men shouted “oh you, kid!”
A life of shame I led 
And dirty doings did.
Until one night I saw the light 
And heard salvation’s call.


I’m so glad I didn’t hear it 
Until I did it all

Repent! Though sinning may seem swell.
Reform! Recant! 
Return! Renounce! 
Repent or go to Hell!
