Eurythmics – Missionary Man lyrics
Well I was born an original sinner, I was borne from original sin
And if I had a dollar bill for all the things I've done
There'd be a mountain of money piled up to my chin

My mother told me good, my mother told me strong
She said, "Be true to yourself and you can't go wrong
But there's just one thing that you must understand"
You can fool with your brother but don't mess with a missionary man"
Don't mess with a missionary man, don't mess with a missionary man, don't mess with a missionary man
Oh the missionary man, he's got god on his side
He's got the saints and apostles backin' up from behind
Black eyed looks from those bible books, he's a man with a mission, got a serious mind
There was a woman in the jungle and a monkey on a tree
The missionary man he was followin' me
He said "Stop what you're doing
Get down upon your knees
I've got a message for you that you better believe", believe, believe, believe, believe, believe, believe, believe, believe, believe, believe, believe, believe, believe, believe, believe, believe, believe, believe, believe, believe, believe, believe

Well I was born an original sinner, I was borne from original sin (Original sin)
And if I had a dollar bill for all the things I've done
There'd be a mountain of money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money

Don't ask, we're in the know
Oh baby (Don't mess with a missionary man)
Leave him alone now (Missionary man)
Don't you mess with him, no, no (Missionary man)
(Missionary man) Don't mess with a missionary man
(Don't you mess with that man) Missionary man
