Lyrics to "The Last Seven Days" by Unit Gloria, the late '60s Dutch prog-rock dirge in which God, disappointed by mankind, decides to undo creation:

On the first of the last seven days
He saw his world and said
Give me back all the animals and birds
They will be spoiled like all the human beings
He heard the people cry, he heard the people sigh
But still they didn't pray, than came the other day

On the second of the last seven days
He saw his world and said
Give me back all the flowers and the trees
You don't deserve their beauty and their shelter

On the third of the last seven days
He saw his world and said
Put out all the stars and the moon
You don't deserve their compass in your darkness
He heard the people cry, he heard the people sigh
But still they didn't pray, than came the other day

On the fourth of the last seven days
He saw his world and said
Give me back my lost trance on this world
For they will die like all of those daredevil traitors

On the fifth of the last seven days
He saw his world and said
Give me back a wonderful sun
You don't deserve the light that's in your blind eyes
He heard the people cry, he heard the people sigh
But still they didn't pray, than came the other day

On the sixth of the last seven days
He saw his world HE SAW HIS WORLD
Now burn down this people and this world
They wouldn't hear
My word up on the mountain
And then, the last day of the week, the world was great and empty
He saw his world and
Cried
