Chorus
When we donґt get what we deserve that's a real good thing
When we get what we donґt deserve
Thatґs a real good thing


Born to sin
And then get caught
All our good deeds
DonВґt mean squat

Sell the Volvo
Shred the Visa
Send the cash to Ma there'sa
Great idea
The only catch is
You donґt get saved
On merit badges

- Chorus -

Doctorґs coming
Looking grim
"Do you have a favorite hymn?"

Check your balance through the years
All accounts are in arrears
Guilt is bitter
Grace is sweet
Park it here
On the mercy seat

- Chorus -
