Shane MacGowan And The Popes – The Church Of The Holy Spook lyrics

My Daddy was a sinner, but my
Mother was a saintly person
But I ruined my life by drinking,
Bad wives, taking pills and cursing
Rock and roll you crucified me,
Left me all alone
I never should have turned my back
On the old folks back at home
Give me that Church of the Holy
Spook, Church of the Holy Spook,
Church of the Holy Spook it's good
Enough for me
I was good for my dear old Daddy
And my dear old Mammy too,
Give me that Church of the Holy
Spook, I don't need nothing new
I believe in the Church of the Holy Spook, I
Believe that he's in me
The Tao is like a river, so float along with me
When the sacred blood of the Holy Ghost is
Boiling in my veins
I think of Jesus on the cross and I
Scream out for his pain
