You wanna see sin of the wickedest kind?
Here it is!
You wanna see virtue left behind?
Here it is!
Sodom was vice and visa-versa
You wanna say where the vice is worser?
Here it is!
I mean, here it is!

You wanna live life in the rottenest way?
Here it is!
Women and whiskey, night and day?
Here it is!
You wanna embrace the golden calf?
Ankle, and thigh, and upper half?
Here it is!
I mean, here it is!

No Name City, No Name City
The Lord don't like it here!
No Name City, No Name City
Your reckonin' day is near!
No Name City, No Name City
Here's what he's gonna do!
Gobble up this town and swallow it down
And goodbye to you!

Will you go to heaven? Will you go to hell?
(Go to Hell)
Either repent or fare thee well
(Fare thee well)
God'll take care of No Name City
Comes the end, and it won't be pretty!
Here it is!
I mean, here it is!
Here it is!
I mean, here it is!
Here it is!
I mean, here it is!
Amen!
