Let's begin
Peter Pumpkinhead came to town
Fed the starving and housed the poor

Of the people who would keep us on our knees
Who'll pray for Peter Pumpkinhead?

Emptied churches and shopping malls
Peter Pumpkinhead told the truth
But he made too many enemies
Hooray for Peter Pumpkin
Oh my!
Peter Pumpkinhead put to shame
Plots and sex scandals failed outright
Any kind of love is alright
But he made too many enemies
Hooray for Peter Pumpkin

Had him nailed to a chunk of wood
Hanging there he looked a lot like you

Of the people who would keep us on our knees
Who'll pray for Peter Pumpkinhead?
Hooray for Peter Pumpkin
Hooray for Peter Pumpkinhead
Don't it make you want to cry, oh
