  • Song Lyrics:
    I am the swami; I am here to say
    Our purpose on the planet is to laugh and play
    If everyone lived life this way
    We'd bring about Non-Judgment Day
    Imagine a world without judgments
    We would all win beauty contests

    Beyondananda is my name
    Fundamentalism is my game
    Everyone gets transcendental
    when the fun comes before the mental
    If you want this truth to come across,
    clear your mind with mental floss like this
    (record scratching sounds)

    Back and forth twice a day
    You'll prevent truth decay

    I am on a special mission
    to bring you people tell-a-vision
    Telling your vision; that's the key
    'Cause what you get is what you see
    I tell a vision; you tell one, too
    You can be your own guru

    G-U-R-U, G-U-R-U, G-U-R-U
    Gee, you are you!

    G-U-R-U, G-U-R-U, G-U-R-U
    Gee, you are you! (dog bark sfx)

    Each of us is a precious soul
    here to play a special role
    Do what you love; that's essential
    It's how you reach your true potential
    If you want to give the world a lift,
    just pursue your special gift

    Valley Girl: "Like, what's my special gift, Swami?"

    Swami: "It is a blender!"
    No, really. Stop sitting on your assets
    Invest in yourself
    'Cause the more your self appreciates
    the more you appreciate yourself

    Peace on the planet
    Peace in your heart
    The face in the mirror is the place to start
    A little peace here and a little peace there
    makes one think peace everywhere!
    Any questions?

    Guy: "Swami, I've heard that the way to survive the coming years is to invest in diamonds and hoard food. What do you say?"

    Swami: "I say invest in hearts and give food away."

    Kid: "Swami, will there ever be peace on earth?"

    Swami: "Absolutely! I sure hope we humans are around to enjoy it."

    Girl: "Swami, what's the key to the universe?"

    Swami: "Well, I've got some bad news and I've got some good news. The bad news is there's no key to the universe. The good news is it has been left unlocked!"

    G-U-R-U, G-U-R-U, G-U-R-U
    Gee, you are you!

    G-U-R-U, G-U-R-U, G-U-R-U
    Gee, you are you! (dog bark sfx)
