Down with sex and sin
Down with pot, heroin
Down with pornography
Down with lust
Down with vice lechery and debauchery
We are the new centurions
Shepherds of the Nations
We'll keep on our guard
For sin and degradation
We are the national guard
Against filth and depravity
Perversion and vulgarity
Homosexuality
Keep it clean
Down with nudity
Breasts that are bare and pubic hair
We are here to cleanse humanity
From the man in the raincoat's
Pale faced glare
So sodomites beware
We are the new centurions
Shepherds of the Nation
We'll keep on our guard
For sin and degradation
We are the national, guard
Against filth and depravity
Perversion and vulgarity
Homosexuality
Keep it clean
I visualize a day when people will be free
From evils like perversion and pornography
We'll cast out Satan and we'll set the sinners free
So people of the nation unite
Put all the pervs in jail
Bring back the birch, and the cat of nine tails
Bring back corporal punishment
Bring back the stocks
And the axeman's block
Let righteousness prevail
Down with nudity and hard core magazines
We'll bring religion back
And keep our country clean
Keep it clean
We are the new centurions
Shepherds of the Nation
We'll keep on our guard
For sin and degradation
We are the national guard
Against filth and depravity
Perversion and vulgarity
Homosexuality
Keep it clean
