A quirky song written by a person called Dan Bern. I've often wondered "what would I say if I met Jesus?". Well this song talks through a guy who meets God and asks three times if God can send him back in time - to save Kurt Cobain, Kill Hitler and rescue Jesus.
At each request, God says "no you'll just caught caught up in the shit of the time" making one of the true points - that all we have is the moment.
There are plenty of versions on the web, but this one done by a guy called "Soursob Bob" at this year's fringe in great. It takes a while to get started so scroll up about 50 seconds.
