lyrics

You’re gonna do whatever suits ya.
But soup kitchens are the churches of the future.
And I don’t know what they’ll try to tell ya.
(What’s that, boy? What’s that?)
But the Jesus Movement is alive and well, y’all.

And brother don’t you know God don’t abhor ya?
The Spirit is here, and he’s coming for ya.
And we don’t need no movers and shakers.
(Why’s that, boy? Tell me why.)
’Cause the Holy Spirit, he’ll move and shake us.

And the only cure for the Welfare State
is breaking into the church’s bank.
And the church’s first money keeper
(What’d he do, boy? Tell me what he did!)
sold his soul for thirty pieces of silver.

And does anybody know where the offering goes?
Has anybody checked the pastor’s pillow?
And if you kinda like to tighten the budget,
(What you gonna do, boy?)
well, I ain’t afraid to go above ya.

And you’re gonna do whatever suits ya.
(And I don’t know what they’ll try to tell ya.)
Soup kitchens are the churches of the future.
(But the Jesus Movement is alive and well, y’all.)
And brother don’t you know God don’t abhor ya?
(And we don’t need no movers and shakers)
The Spirit is here, and he’s coming for ya.
(’cause the Holy Spirit, he’ll move and shake us.)
And the only cure for the Welfare State
(The church’s first money keeper)
is breaking into the church’s bank.
(sold his soul for thirty pieces of silver.)
And does anybody know where the offering goes?
(And if you kinda like to tighten the budget,
There’s a hoard of swank that lines your pastor’s pillow.
(Well, I ain’t afraid to go above ya.)
