lyrics

INTRO:

Alright, it's been awhile. Let me check in on how my creation is doing. It's kind of like Animal Crossing, but if you eat the wrong fruit, it's game over!

VERSE 1:

In seven days, seven nights, it was on
I said, “Let there be light" and the darkness was gone
Made a little planet and I peppered it with trees
Fish and the birds and the sky and the seas
Then I thought I’d make it interesting, there’s nothing like this
Made little homie in my own likeness
Paradise found, the creation of humanity
Made him a partner, then came calamity
“One rule one though,” was alI I said
I got you on the rent and I’ll bring your daily bread
All you got to do is be like Bill Gates
Avoid the Apple and then you can stay
In Eden, meaning, all will be well
But now I've got super sad story to tell
Divine spark, y’all were hella innocent
Now you realize that you’re naked and you've built your own imprisonment

CHORUS:

(You only had one job!)
Don’t eat the apple, don’t eat, don’t eat the apple!
(You only had one job!)
Don’t eat the apple, don’t eat, don’t eat the apple!
(You only had one job!)
Don’t eat the apple, don’t eat, don’t eat the apple!
(You only had one job!)
Don’t eat the apple, now Adam and Eve in shackles you grapple

VERSE 2:

I walked and talked in the garden all friendly
So what went wrong? Let’s not pretend, G
But I can’t blame Eve, it was the serpent in tree
Death was created, now look at me
I’ve got to be the bad guy, send you out of Eden
Due to the fruit of knowledge you be eatin’
Now there’s got to be a lot of drama following your fall
Your son will kill his brother, but that’s not all
Now you’re raising Cain, Able to backfire
The origin of prayer, mankind expires
By the sweat of your brow will you eat your snacks
Until death, and Mother Earth takes you back
And as for the snake now he’s crawling on his belly
Origin sin too ready to be deadly
To sum things up I’m not tryin to be mean it’s
You just should have read the user agreement!

CHORUS:

(You only had one job!)
Don’t eat the apple, don’t eat, don’t eat the apple!
(You only had one job!)
Don’t eat the apple, don’t eat, don’t eat the apple!
(You only had one job!)
Don’t eat the apple, don’t eat, don’t eat the apple!
(You only had one job!)
Don’t eat the apple, now Adam and Eve in shackles you grapple


Don’t eat the apple, don’t eat, don’t eat the apple!
(Now ever again)
Don’t eat the apple, don’t eat, don’t eat the apple!
(Will I ever have to worry)
Don’t eat the apple, don’t eat, don’t eat the apple!
(About humanity…)
Don’t eat the apple, now Adam and Eve in shackles you grapple

(… making regrettable decisions, it’s smooth sailing from here on out. Speaking of sailing, what are you up to Friday, Noah?)
