Paul Kelly – Stealing In The Name Of The Lord lyrics
Woah, oooooh
Woooo-wooooh
(Mmhmmmm)
Woooooh-oooooh, yeah.

There's a man
On the corner,
Raisin' a congregation,
Sayin' that he's the one,
Brothers and sisters,
That's gonna bring us all salvation.

Sayin' that he's the one
To make a way for us.
He's gonna do it with no hesitation.

Sayin' step!
In the line.
Can you spare a dime?

I heard him say,
Step!
Right on up.
How you this evenin'?
Drop a buck.

People, I tell ya,
What I see, um-hum.
A parasite is he.
Ain't much difference,
In what he's doin',
Good people, from B&E,
That's breaking and entering, you know.

That man is . . .
(Stealin' in the name of the Lord)
Sayin' God's gonna bless ya . . .
(Stealin' in the name of the Lord)

Hey, hey, hey.
It's happenin' every day.
This man, he'll walk
Up to ya,
And look you in the eye, huh!
Put his hand
On your shoulder,
And tell you
A big fat lie.
He'll tell ya,
God's gonna bless ya, children,
If you put your faith in me.
Huh!
Then he'll pass the tray,
While the choir's singin',
Nearer My God To Thee.
Uh-huh-huh.

Step!
In the line!
Can you spare a dime?
I heard him say,
Step!
Right on up, good people!
Drop a buck.

That man is . . .
(Stealin' in the name of the Lord)
That's what he's doin', yeah . . .
(Stealin' in the name of the Lord)
Yeah . . .

Comes confession time
That's the time to spill your mind.
He sits back in his easy chair
And listens to ya testify.
When that's over,
He puts his hands on your shoulder.
Tells you,
All is forgiven.
The man can't be colder.
Ooh-ooh-ooh.

Step!
In the line!
Can you spare a dime?
I heard him say,
Step!
Right on up, good people.
Drop a buck.

That man is. . .
(Stealin' in the name of the Lord)
Sayin' God's gonna bless ya! Yeah!
(Stealin' in the name of the Lord)
He's gonna save your soul!
(Stealin'!)
Huh!
That's what he said.
(Stealin'!)
Pick your life up and make you whole.
(Stealin'!)
Yeah, that's what he said.
(Stealin'!)
This man will sock it to you!
(Stealin'!)
Yeah!
(Stealin'!)
In God's name, now.
(Stealin'!)
This man will rock it to ya!
(Stealin'!)
Yes, he will.
(Stealin'!)
In God's name.
(Stealin'!)
He'll steal your money,
(Stealin'!)
(Stealin'!)
And tell ya you don't need no money.
(Stealin'!)
(Stealin'!)
Said all you need is him and God!
(Stealin!)
This man, yes, he's, oooh
(Stealin'!)
Yes, he's
(Stealin'!)
Stealin'!
(Stealin!)
Stealin'!

[Fade]
