Making Buddha's Hard To Do

Words: © 1991 by Tom Smith
Music: "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do" by Neil Sedaka & Howard Greenfield
I am mightily proud of this punfest. Sometimes, to introduce it, I swipe a shtick from the New Age Punmaster, Swami Beyondananda, about learning this song from the Guru of Rock And Roll, Baba U-Mao-Mao, whose teachings include "Doo-wop unto others as you would have others doo-wop unto you".

Karma Karma Omm Dooby-Doo Tao Tao,
Karma Karma Omm Dooby-Doo Tao Tao,
Karma Karma Omm Dooby-Doo Tao Tao,
Making Buddha... is hard to do.

Your journey starts with just one step,
Try to find one that's cool and hep,
Frug, moonwalk, or boogaloo,
'Cause making Buddha's hard to do.

Stand on your head, you'll see visions when
You're deprived of your oxygen,
All while doing yoga, too,
'Cause making Buddha's hard to do.

They say that making Buddha's hard to do,
Let me tell you, that isn't true.
Relax, don't try to fight,
Just scan the tantra, chant the mantra,
Rant and pant until you can't.

We've got a plan for losing weight --
Diet, exercise and levitate.
There's Astral Plane, and Peanut, too,
'Cause making Buddha's hard to do.

Your path will change, but don't ask how,
That was Zen, and this is Tao,
And Lao-Tse puns you'll suffer through,
'Cause making Buddha's hard to do.

They say that making Buddha's hard to do,
Let me tell you, there can't be two.
Seek your own inner light,
And play the Wheel of Fortune right,
And you could meet Nir-Vanna White.

Open your mind, but shut down your brains,
Soon you'll find that Confucian reigns.
Just live your life like Winnie-the-Pooh,
And making Buddha's not hard to do.

You've found release, let your spirit grow,
This life down and the rest to go,
Unless what Falwell says is true,
And making Buddha's hard to do.

Dooby-doo Tao Tao,
Karma Karma Omm Dooby-Doo Tao Tao,
Karma Karma Omm Dooby-Doo Tao Tao,
Making Buddha's hard to -- one more incarnation!

Omm Dooby-doo Tao Tao,
Karma Karma Omm Dooby-Doo Tao Tao,
Karma Karma Omm Dooby-Doo Tao Tao,
Making Buddha's hard to do!
