Text písně

Levon wears his war-wound like a crown,
He calls his child Jesus 'cause he likes the name
And he sends him to the finest school in town.

Levon, Levon likes his money,
He makes a lot they say;
Spend his days counting
In a garage by the motorway.

He was born a pauper to a pawn on a Christmas day,
When the New York Times
Said, „God is dead, and war's begun,
And Alvin Tostig has a son today.“

And he shall be Levon,
And he shall be a good man,
And he shall be Levon,
In tradition with the family plan,
And he shall be Levon,
And he shall be a good man,
He shall be Levon.

Levon sells cartoon balloons in town,
His family business thrives.
Jesus blows up balloons all day,
Sits on the porch swing watching them fly,

And Jesus, he wants to go to Venus,
Leaving Levon far behind;
Take a balloon, and go sailing,
While Levon – Levon slowly dies.
