Telling me how to live my life
Where's your bible? Where's your money?
You can't sell religion through the tube
Send you money, we'd all get screwed
[Chorus:]
Religious Ripoff/ Gospel Scam
Ernest Angeley/ Billy Graham
Upside-down cross is what you should wear
Religious Ripoff everywhere
T.V. evangelists put on a show
Trying to tell me what they know
Just send us money and you'll be saved
Pretty soon you'll be our slave
[Chorus]
You say this program may change my life
When all you give me is song and dance
I can get that slime if I watch prime-time
What you do is gospel crime
