  • Levon wears his war wound like a crown
    He calls his child Jesus 'cause he likes the name
    And he sends him to the finest school in town.

    Levon, Levon likes his money
    He makes a lot they say
    Spend his days counting
    In a garage by the motorway

    He was born a pauper
    To a pawn on a Christmas day
    When the New York Times
    Said God is dead and war's begun
    Alvin Tostig has a son today

    And he shall be Levon
    And he shall be a good man
    And he shall be Levon
    In tradition with the family plan
    And he shall be Levon
    And he shall be a good man
    He shall be Levon.

    Levon's sells cartoon balloons in town
    His family business thrives
    Jesus blows up balloons all day
    Sits on the porch swing watching them fly
    And Jesus, he wants to go to Venus
    Leave Levon far behind
    Take a balloon and go sailing,
    While Levon, Levon slowly dies.

    And he shall be Levon
    And he shall be a good man
    He shall be Levon
