It's the bible against the bottle
In the battle for daddy's soul
It's moma against the party girls
Over who's gonna win control
On Sunday it's Rock of Ages
On Monday let the good times roll
It's the bible against the bottle
In the battle for daddy's soul.

If faith can move a mountain
Moma's gonna win
But even moma will admit
There's a whole lot goin' for sin
With sweet red wine and party girls
And the big time songs to sing
Maybe she could tell daddy
That's really the swingin' thing.

It's the bible against the bottle
In the battle for daddy's soul
It's moma against the party girls
Over who's gonna win control
On Sunday it's Rock of Ages
On Monday let the good times roll
It's the bible against the bottle
In the battle for daddy's soul.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, I just can't help believein'
Momas's gonna win
The milk of human kindness
Is a whole lot stronger than gin
With faith in God and daily prayer
And gospel songs to sing
Moma keeps a-showin' daddy
God's love is a precious thing.

It's the bible against the bottle
In the battle for daddy's soul
It's moma against the party girls
Over who's gonna win control
On Sunday it's Rock of Ages
On Monday let the good times roll
It's the bible against the bottle
In the battle for daddy's soul.

It's the bible against the bottle
In the battle for daddy's soul
It's moma against the party girls
Over who's gonna win control
On Sunday it's Rock of Ages
On Monday let the good times roll
It's the bible against the bottle
In the battle for daddy's soul...
