"Nothing From Nothing" is a song by Billy Preston. It was featured in the Season Two episode, "The Mexican Staring Frog of Southern Sri Lanka".

Background

In Jesus Christ's first interview with Bob Denver in the Jesus and Pals show, while Jesus asked what Bob Denver had been up to, the latter simply said "nothing really at all". In response, the Disciples band which was providing music for the show began playing this song.

Lyrics

Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
You gotta have somethin' if you want to be with me
Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
You gotta have somethin' if you want to be with me

I'm not tryin' to be your hero
'Cause that zero is too cold for me, brrr
I'm not tryin' to be your highness
'Cause that minus is too low to see, yeah

Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
And I'm not stuffin', believe you me
Don't you remember I told ya
I'm a soldier in the war on poverty, yeah
Yes, I am

Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
You gotta have somethin' if you want to be with me
Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
You gotta have somethin' if you want to be with me

You gotta have somethin' if you want to be with me
You gotta bring me somethin' girl, if you want to be with me
