“In the musical The Book of Mormon there is a song that is both beautifully poetic and rhythmic. It just grabs you. It is sung by the inhabitants of a small Ugandan village who then translate the words and, well, suffice it to say the natives are shooting God “the bird.”
Hasa Diga Eebowai
When the world is getting you down
There’s nobody else to blame
Raise your middle finger to the sky
And curse his rotten name.”
The Book of Mormon, book, lyrics, and music by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez, and Matt Stone.
