Vito's Ordination Song

I always knew you
in your mothers arms
i have called your name
i have an idea
placed in your mind
to be a better man
ive made a crown for you
put it in your room
and when the bride groom comes
there will be noise
there will be glad
and a perfect bed
and when you write a poem
i know the words
i know the sounds
before you write it down
only wear your clothes
i wear them too
i wear your shoes
and your jacket too
i always knew you
in your mothers arms
i have called you son
ive made amends
between father and son
or if you havent one
rest in my arms
sleep in my bed
there is a design
to what i did and said

Sufjan Stevens, Greetings from Michigan - The Great Lake State

I think it is pretty obvious what he is saying in this song. Truly, some great lyrics to accompany a marvelous tune. Oh the harmonies!

Here is the cd cover for the upcoming cd from The Welcome Wagon (by the Reverend Vito himself):
