Lyrics

[RIVERS:] Maybe think Old Testament?
[SCOTT:] Old Testament? Not that newer crap
[BRIAN:] Old Testament? You mean the metal band?

This garden was an Eden all summer long
But now the leaves are turning; where did I go wrong?
She's been off in the dark at the tree of life
Worshipping a serpent, taking in his lies

So tell me God, tell me God
How would you handle this?
How should I handle this?

Should she stay or should she go, go, go?
I don't know-oh-oh, I don't know-oh-oh
Should she stay or should she go, go, go?
She is all I know, I can't let her go

She's the queen of the earth, and I'm her king
But lately we've been fighting about everything (and nothing)
I could kick her ass out, move on with my life
Or I can follow her into the night

So tell me God, tell me God
How would you handle this?
How should I handle this?

Should she stay or should she go, go, go?
I don't know-oh-oh, I don't know-oh-oh
Should she stay or should she go, go, go?
She is all I know, I can't let her go
Should she stay or should she go, go, go?
I don't know-oh-oh, I don't know-oh-oh
Should she stay or should she go, go, go?
She is all I know, I can't let her go
