Golden Boy
The Mountain Goats Lyrics


*hello there paul. i had a take and i listend to it and i was ready to send it then i thought, you know...it could be done better. so here it is then. now i have my boots on, which always garuntees a good showing.*

you must try to lead a good life
you must do unto others
as you would have them do
so that when you die
you'll find golden boy peanuts
waiting in the afterlife for you

there are no pan-asain supermakets
down in hell
so you can't buy golden boy peanuts
there are no pan-asain supermakets
down in hell
so you can't buy golden boy peanuts
yeah

if thine enemy oppresses you
you must
let him opress you some more
so that when you go shoping in paradise
you'll find those magnificent peanuts
from singapore
with the drawing of the
young chinese farmer
eastern sun behind him
smiling at you from the shelves
if we want to spend eternaty in happynes
we are going to have to watch ourselves

you must give to the march of dimes
you must be on gaurd against wickednes
at all times
and you will
find that your efforts
have brought you great joy
when your
spirit is munching on that
golden boy

there are no pan-asain supermakets
down in hell
so you can't buy golden boy peanuts
there
but the
streets of heaven are lined with shells
and there's billboards of the golden boy
everywhere

there are no pan-asain supermakets
down in hell
so you can't buy golden boy peanuts
there are no pan-asain supermakets
down in hell
so you can't buy golden boy peanuts
go!

[Intro]
Hello there, Paul!
I had a take and I listened to it
And I was ready to send it and I thought:
You know? It can be done better
So here it is, then
Now I'm wearing my boots
Which always guarantees a good showing

[Verse 1]
You must try to lead a good life
You must do unto others as you would have them do
So that when you die, you'll find Golden Boy peanuts
Waiting in the afterlife for you

[Chorus]
There are no pan-Asian supermarkets down in hell
So you can't buy Golden Boy peanuts
There are no pan-Asian supermarkets down in hell
So you can't buy Golden Boy peanuts

[Verse 2]
If thine enemy oppresseth you
You must let him oppress you some more
So that when you go shopping in paradise
You'll find those magnificent peanuts from Singapore

With the drawing of the young Chinese farmer
The eastern sun behind him smiling at you from the shelves
If we want to spend eternity in happiness
Well we're gonna have watch ourselves

You must give to the March of Dimes
You must be on guard against wickedness at all times
And you will find that your efforts have brought you great joy
When your spirit is munching on that Golden Boy

[Chorus]
There are no pan-Asian supermarkets down in hell
So you can't buy Golden Boy peanuts there
But the streets of heaven are lined with shells
And there's billboards of the Golden Boy everywhere

[Chorus]
There are no pan-Asian supermarkets down in hell
So you can't buy Golden Boy peanuts
There are no pan-Asian supermarkets down in hell
So you can't buy Golden Boy peanuts... GO!

There are no cassette tapes or players down in Hell so you can't listen to lo-fi Mountain Goats there.

aww fuck

Kat Espinoza

this song has done more for shaping me into a moral, virtuous individual than 6 years of catholic school

Francisco Gonzalez

This is why Doomguy is so angry. There's no pan-asian supermarkets in Hell

Francisco Gonzalez

Granted, letting your enemy oppress you so you can get some peanuts in Heaven is a pretty raw deal.

Chacho Paul

Have you ever had Golden Boy Peanuts? This is a very good deal.

Jamming to this in my room as an atheist. I love mountain goats.

Bobulesca

I mean the song seems pretty subversively aimed at how arbitrary eternal reward systems are so you're probably the intended audience lol

The song is literally about trying to go to heaven for peanuts. I thought that was brilliant.

Michal Jo

this song reminds me of when I was a kid and adults would try and explain to me about heaven and hell, like it sounds like a thought jd had when he was a kid.

This song brought to you by Pan-Asian Supermarkets. "We got them Golden Boy Peanuts, but only if you stay out of hell."
