All American Prophet Lyrics

    You all know the Bible
    Is made of Testaments old and new
    You been told it's just those two parts
    Or only one if you're a Jew

    But what if I were to tell you
    There's a fresh third part out there
    Which was found by a hip new prophet
    Who had a little Donny Osmond flair?

    Have you heard of the All-American Prophet?
    The blonde-haired, blue-eyed voice of God
    He didn't come from the Middle East
    Like those other holy men
    No, God's favorite prophet was All-American

    I'm gonna take you back to Biblical times, 1823
    An American man named Joe living on a farm
    In the holy land of Rochester, New York

    You mean the Mormon Prophet Joseph Smith?
    That's right, that young man spoke to God
    He spoke to God, and God said
    "Joe, people really need to know that the Bible
    Isn't two parts, there's a part three to the Bible, Joe
    And I, God, have anointed you to dig up this part three
    That is buried by a tree on a hill in your backyard"

    Wow, God says go to your backyard and start digging?
    That makes perfect sense

    Joseph Smith went up on that hill
    And dug where he was told
    And deep in the ground
    Joseph found shining plates of gold

    "What are these Golden Plates?
    Who buried them here and why?"
    Then appeared an Angel
    His name was Moroni "I am Moroni"

    The All-American Angel
    My people lived here long, long ago
    This is a history of my race
    Please read the words within
    We were Jews who met with Christ
    But we were All-American

    But don't let anybody see these plates except for you
    They are only for you to see
    Even if people ask you to show the Plates to them, don't
    Just copy them onto normal paper
    Even though this might make them question
    If the Plates are real or not
    This is sort of what God is going for

    Joseph took the Plates home
    And wrote down what he found inside
    He turned those Plates into a book
    Then he rushed into town and cried

    "Hey, God spoke to me and gave me
    This blessed ancient tome
    He hath commanded me to publish it
    And stick it in every home"

    Wow, so the Bible is actually a trilogy
    And The Book of Mormon is Return of the Jedi?
    I'm interested

    Now many people didn't believe the Prophet Joseph Smith
    They thought he'd made up this part three
    That was buried by a tree on the hill in his backyard

    "Liar" But Joe said "This is no lie
    Speak to God all the time
    And he told me to head West"

    "So I'll take my part three from the hill with the tree
    Feel free if you'd like to come along with me
    To the Promised Land"

    "The Promised Land?"
    "Paradise on the West Coast
    Nothing but fruit and fields as far as the eye can see"

    Have you heard of the All-American Prophet?
    He found a brand new book about Jesus Christ
    We are following him to Paradise
    We call ourselves Mormon
    And our new religion is All-American

    Wow, how much does it cost?
    The Mormons kept on searching for
    That place to settle down
    And every time they thought they'd found it
    They got kicked out of town

    And even though people wanted
    To see the Golden Plates
    Joseph never showed 'em
    I have maggots in my scrotum

    Umm okay, well, anyway
    Now comes the part of our story
    That get a little bit sad
    On the way to the Promised Land
    Mormons made people mad

    Joseph was shot by an angry mob
    And knew he'd soon be done
    "You must lead the people now
    My good friend, Brigham Young"

    "Oh God, why are you letting me die
    Without having me show people the Plates
    They'll have no proof I was telling the truth or not
    They'll have to believe it just 'cause
    Oh, I guess that's kinda what you were going for"

    The Prophet Joseph Smith died for what he believed in
    But as followers, they kept heading West
    And Brigham Young led them to Paradise
    A sparkling land in Utah they called Salt Lake City

    And there, the Mormons multiplied
    And made big Mormon families
    Generation after generation
    Until finally, they made me
    And now it's my job to lead you
    Where those early settlers were led long ago

    Have you heard of the All-American Prophet?
    (Kevin Price)
    The next in line to be the voice of God
    (My best friend)

    He's gonna do something incredible
    And be Joseph Smith again
    Because Kevin Price the Prophet is All-American

    If you order now
    We'll also throw in a set of steak knives
