It was easy to see that my people
Needed a champion to defend them from evil,
So I got to working as hard as I can,
Working on an artificial clay man.
I used my kabalarian rabbinical powers
Mystical letters upon his brow...

Oh! My! Golem!

Out in to the world I sent him,
Fighting evil, no force could dent him.
With each evil he fought he just got stronger,
Till he was too strong to control any longer.

I tried to recall him after his latest disaster,
"I'm your Western Intellectual master!
You wouldn't exist without my idea."
He sent me a postcard that said “Seeya
Wouldn't wanna be ya...

Having a wonderfully violent time,
Don't even care if you're here!”

Oh! My! Golem!
Oh! My! Golem!
