Apologetix – Very Wiser lyrics

I know lots of nerdy things
To me it might seem
That trivia's cool and neat
But most of that stuff's just good
For Jeopardy and a few crossword puzzle books
Chess club is not for me
I must pretend to think
Then I just move a piece
But I have a strategy
That I embrace
For the questions I face

Well, I'm not very wise
But I seek to be instructed by You
I'm gonna pray to You, because You said You will
If somebody lacks wisdom like I often do

You'll always give it to them when they pray to You

A whole lot of Harvard shrinks
Would surely think
I took it too lit'rally
They're so smart they've gotten dumb
I suggest they go
Just once and read in James 1
Wisdom will grow for me
And those who seek Thee
No Ivy League school competes
'Cause that's still a strategy
That's smartly based
On what James 1: 5 says

James 1: 5
If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all
Without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
