Holy Smoke Lyrics - Iron Maiden

Review The Song (4)



Believe in me - send no money
I died on the cross, that ain't funny
But my so-called friends they're making me a joke
They missed out what I said like I never spoke
They choose what they want to hear - don't tell a lie
They just leave out the truth as they're watching you die
Saving your souls by taking your money
Flies around s**t, bees around honey

Holy smoke, holy smoke
Plenty bad preachers for the Devil to stoke
Feed them in feet first this is no joke
This is thirsty work making holy smoke yeah
Making holy smoke

Jimmy Reptile and all his friends
Say they going to be with you at the end
Burning records, burning books
sponsored links
Holy soldiers, Nazi looks
Crocodile smiles just wait a while
Till the TV Queen gets her make-up clean
I've lived in filth, I've lived in sin
And I still smell cleaner than the s**t you're in

Holy smoke, holy smoke
There's plenty bad preachers for the Devil to stoke
Feed them in feet first this is no joke
This is thirsty work making holy smoke yeah

Holy smoke - smells good

They ain't religious but they ain't no fools
When Noah built his Cadillac it was cool
Two by two they're still going down
And the satellite circus just left town
I think they're strange and when they're dead
They can have a Lincoln for their bed
Friend of the President trick of the tail
Now they ain't got a prayer 100 years in jail

Holy smoke, holy smoke
Plenty bad preachers for the Devil to stoke
Feed them in feet first this is no joke
This is thirsty work making holy smoke

Holy smoke

It's about the preachers in the 80s and 90s. The Televangelists who took millions from their followers to do "God's work", and were caught with private jets and luxury homes. Jimmy Reptile is almost certainly a reference to Jimmy Swaggart and the TV Queen is probably Tammy Faye Bakker.



Meaning | Reviewer: Klintopher | 12/28/10

Good song! :D
It's obviously about how preachers now a days are horrible and they twist the message of god and just try to get money. and it talks about the punishment they'll get for doing this.
"I've lived in filth, I've lived in sin and I still smell cleaner than the shit you're in!"
