Natalie Cole – Reverend Lee lyrics

This is a song about a very big, strong, black, s*** southern baptist minister

Who thinks he's got his program all together, until he meets a lady who lets him know

That he ain't got it all together, his name is reverend dr. Lee

Reverend lee, he went to the water, and he prayed to the lord

About old satan's daughter, it seems in a dream, child, while he lay sleeping

She climbed in his bed, starts rubbing and weeping, ah, she was twisting and turning, hmm

She was begging and pleading, loving and burning, panting, breathing, ooh, ah, ah

Reverend lee, she said, lord knows that I love you child, but I would not even, no, no,

Place God above you, well reverend lee, he lifted his arms high

Said heavenly father, take me home to the sky, he said lord please don't test me

Not down where she touched me, my mind is so hazy

And you know my body is hungry, oh yeah, and then God rolled the thunder

And he hurled the lightening uh, oh, he seemed to be angry

Well it really was frightening, yes he was, oh the thunder grew louder

Darkened conditions, and just then a voice said, God cannot be petitioned

Just then the devil, oh he emerged from the water, and he said in that dry voice

Your God will not barter, reverend lee, he went screaming from the water

And he was hotly pursued by old satan's daughter

And she said, she said reverend, ooh, reverend, reverend lee

She said reverend lee, do it to me, she said, she said, uh, reverend lee

(reverend, reverend, reverend, reverend lee), I don't want nobody else to do it

Do it but you, do it, do it, yeah you, do it, do it to me
