[1st Verse:]
Lord they really think they fooling you by coming to church on Sunday
Praying and laying hands on folks stomping and jumping around faking the holy ghost
But it's a thin line between walking it and talking it
Living it and giving it or just pretending it's alright
And did they really think that they could pull the wool over your eyes lord
Did they really think that by faking they were saved that they would get the same reward
This be the realest thing I ever wrote for sure
After this a lot of folks wont like me no mo'
But after this I gotta go answer to you Lord
So I've made up my mind I'm a go to church on Sunday
And sing a song that may hurt somebody's feelings so that maybe
Thy will, will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
And hopefully they will see
How much they really be discouraging a little old sinner like me

[2nd Verse:]
And Lord who they think they jiving by singing these songs full of glory
Then out in the world it's a different story
I'm running out of people to pray for me
I'm not trying to act like I'm the perfect man
But if you speak about it, you should be about it not just preach about it all day
Cause if you do you run the risk of chasing some of the most beautiful people away
And it is never my intention to discourage you rather encourage you to change your life today
This be the realest thing I ever had to say, but after this a lot of folks wont like me no mo'
But after this I gotta go answer to you Lord
So I've made up my mind I'm a go to church on Sunday
And sing a song that may hurt somebody's feelings so that maybe thy will, will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
And hopefully they will see
How much they really be discouraging a little old sinner like me
