Greg has a habit of changing his songs over time, but the verses quoted above are the standard ones.

There was one other, as I recall. It went something like:

You gotta jump in your old Ford,
Strap on your new sword,
Wait for the good Lord to return,
If you got your honey,
Life can be pretty funny,
If you've money, you've got money to burn.

I remember Greg saying in concert many years ago before singing this song that it is one song he regretted writing because he was forever getting phone calls late at night from people who couldn't get it out of their heads but couldn't quite remember the words!
