Comedian Bo Burnham Sings a Song ‘From God’s Perspective’

Comedian/songwriter Bo Burnham‘s new special what. premieres on YouTube this Tuesday and the song he’s released as a trailer, “From God’s Perspective,” is just awesome:

The books you think I wrote are way too thick.
Who needs a thousand metaphors to figure out you shouldn’t be a dick?
And I don’t watch you when you sleep.
Surprisingly, I don’t use my omnipotence to be a fucking creep.

You’re not going to heaven.
Why the fuck would you think Id ever kick it with you?
None of you are going to heaven.
There’s a trillion aliens cooler than you.

(Full lyrics on his YouTube page)

Burnham’s anti-religion song from his 2010 special has even more entertaining wordplay.

    Do people still go nuts for Bo nuts?

  • BobButtons

    They be like donuts. Make ’em cream filled or give ’em a layer of glaze.

  • momtarkle

    Loved it! Thanks, Hemant.

  • Terry Firma

    The subject matter, lyrical approach, inflections, and spoken asides are rather a lot like Tim Minchin’s. Still enjoyed it though.

    “I created the universe…you think I’m drawing the line at the fucking deli aisle?”

    Love it.

    is god against rape? thought that was kind of a gray area for him. If I remember right, “Thou shalt not commit consensual sex with another adult outside of your marriage” made the most important list of rules ever, but I don’t remember much barring the non-consensual kind. Admittedly, I’m no bible scholar.
