The wisdom of Satan

I'd like to quote a famous song

Sat the Devil talking to his son, who wanted to go
Up above, up above,
He cried "It's getting too warm for me - down here and so,
I'm going up on Earth where I can have a little fun."
The Devil simply shook his head and answered his son:
"Stay down here where you belong.
The folks who live above you don't know right from wrong.
To please their kings they've all gone out to war,
And not a one of them knows what's he's fighting for.
Way up above they say that I'm the Devil and I'm bad,
Kings up there are bigger Devils than your Dad,
They're breaking the hearts of mothers,
Making butchers out of brothers,
You'll find more hell up there, than there is down below."

That song is “Stay Down Here Where You Belong”, written in 1914 by Irving Berlin, more commonly known as the author of “God Bless America“, and other classic tunes like “Putting on the Ritz”.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
