Christina, the astonishing
Lived a long, long time ago
She was stricken with a seizure
At the age of twenty-two

They took her body in a coffin
To a tiny church in liege
Where she sprang up from the coffin
Just after the agnus dei

She soared up to the rafters
Perched on a beam up there
Cried, "the stink of human sin
The stink of human sin
The stink is more that i can bear"

And i said, "oh, oh, oh"

Christina, the astonishing
Was the most astonishing of all
She prayed, balanced on a hurdle
Or curled up into a ball

She fled to remote places
Climbed towers and trees and walls
To escape the stench of corruption
The stench of human corruption
Into an oven, she did crawl

And i said, "oh, oh, oh"

Christina, the astonishing
Behaved in a terrifying way
She'd run wildly through the streets
Jump in the meusse and swim away

Christina, the astonishing
Behaved in a terrifying manner
She died at the age of seventy-four
Died at the age of seventy-four
In the convent of st. anna

And i said, "oh, oh, oh"
