lyrics

Well, you're singin' a tune and it's got my heart hummin'
you're so beautiful babe I think Jesus is comin'
Here's a glass for the wine and one to put rum in
I didn't mix him a drink still I think Jesus is comin'

Well there's no need to fear my dear
when I give you the word
That the lord and his sword would be bored out of his gourd
if he was anywhere else, but here

Well love you're a glove to put my fingers and thumb in
and in heaven above someone left the water running
I'm not saying this is the end of everything
just the beginning of something
And when you hold my hand as planned Jesus is coming

It's so wonderful my love how you show me the way
that if there's no tomorrow there is no need for sorrow
If we're happy only today

Your empathy is a symphony composed by the Great George Jacob Gershwin
and you massage my ego, like you're pulling on purse strings
I'd wager your behavior would start a stuffed shirt to mumbling
and when we do the hokey pokey I know Jesus is coming

It's no stranger than when you're near
oh it is just something small
That holiness should appear in neither the front nor the rear
but where we do not expect it at all
That this holiness should appear in neither the front nor the read
but where we do not expect it at all
