The Answer – Preachin lyrics

Gonna get me religion, I'm gonna join the baptist church
Gonna get me religion, I'm gonna join the baptist church
That's right
Gonna be a baptist preacher so that I won't have to work

Well, I'll be in the pulpit jumpin' up and down, down, down, down, down
Yeah, I'll be in the pulpit jumpin' up and down
Okay

Well I be hollerin' good news, oh for miles around
O-ho

One sister jumped up, ooh she began to grin. Yeah she did
Well one sister jumped up, ooh she began to grin
She said: Good lord have a-mercy, please forgive me for my sins
Forgive me now, please please please

Ah yes

Get me religion, gonna join the baptist church
Climb up this mountain, shining down upon my work
Get me religion, gonna join the baptist church

Now we're gonna lift it up
Yes we've got to lift it up
Tell me do you feel alright
Tell me do you feel alright
Then we can scream and shout
Yes we can scream and shout
Then you can clap your hands
Yeah you can clap your hands
Well you can clap your hands, clap your hands, clap your hands
Ah you can clap your hands, clap your hands, clap your hands

Ooooh
I'm gonna get me religion, ooh I'm gonna join the baptist church
That's right
Yeah, I'm gonna get me a religion, I'm gonna join the baptist church

Gonna preach all day so I don't have to work
Preach all day so I don't have to work
Gonna preach all day so I don't hurt
Gonna preach all day so I don't know
Gonna preach all day so I don't have to
Work no more
Work no more
Work no more
Work no more

I ain't gonna work
I don't wanna work
I ain't gonna work no more
