DASH OF HOLY WATER

Words & Music by: Piet Louter



When I was born, I’ve been hurried for ridding me of the sin
That I would have got from Adam, naughty as he has been.
How could I bear and be aware of anything good or bad?
Helpless and dependent, they splashed my tender head.

All my life was made up on that day.
And I certainly couldn’t get away.
So I loudly cried to heaven, when the priest was coming up
With a dash of holy water, just coming from the tap.


Oh I am sure, their hearts were pure, saving me from hell
Seeing they were good parents, they wished me to turn out well.
Why should they care, being unaware of it could do any harm?
Trustfully and proudly, they held me in their arms.

All my life was made up on that day.
And I certainly couldn’t get away.
So I loudly cried to heaven, when the priest was coming up
With a dash of holy water, just coming from the tap.


I guess, the priest was very pleased with counting me in his crowd
As another new believer, as if I would have really vowed.
He just could bear being aware of I couldn’t reason about,
Referring to his servant’s job, that he was carrying out.

All my life was made up right away.
And everybody had a lovely day.
But I, I cried to heaven, when the priest was coming up
With a dash of holy water, just coming from the tap.
