    Ok, I don't know but I've been told when the saints come marching in we roll
    So deep that they can't believe we sold out seats and them cd's
    Please don't sleep on the beat I.....beat up these
    Still don't get it would you keep up please
    We ain't no heroes for sale, if you bought one better keep your receipt
    Ok I get it I know what they thinking
    We some kumbya singing corny Christians keep your distance
    Buy a ticket to a concert pay a visit think it's odd
    We them blues brothers 116 on a mission from God
    I don't think they get it I really think what they gotta do is see it to believe it I wasn't planning on leaving them
    Gimmie the microphone with no gimmicks I'm really living it so when they come in and don't you know to get up on the evidence
    You ever wanna get it well tell 'em to come and get it
    I point 'em to a God and we tell 'em we really wit Him
    They thinkin' that I'm tripping cause I'm livin' for more than just rappin' but that's what happens when

    When the saints, go marching in
    When the saints, go marching in
    When the saints go (marching in)
    When the saints go (marching in)

    Oh no, here they go go
    Them boys sold out no promo
    Tell me give em 2 years it'll go cold
    But them words got ate like ocho
    Imma keep it 300
    Industry probably wanna see us so on
    But we in it we in it we live it we give it our God gon do what he want
    We favored the aroma is that our God saves
    Married to the Rock and I'm faithful
    To take these words beyond say
    Don't it feel like we famous
    But the world will know what are name is
    But heaven knows us baby and that book of life is that a list
    So I ball I'm so rich and I ain't talking bout cheddar
    But I bank on Christ go and talk to the teller
    Got the checks that I get I'll be cashing forever
    Laugh at the saints that ain't a thing go
    They be lacking to pay that thinking straight
    Man we ain't lacking a thing rack in the faith
    Paid by the blood of the Lamb that is paid
    Debt is paid
    (Praise to our God)

    When the saints, go marching in
    When the saints, go marching in
    When the saints go (marching in)
    When the saints go (marching in)

    Now I don't know what you've been told about us bout us
    But we gon' love em even though they doubt us doubt us
    We just visiting like we some out of towners
    Got em asking us how does this God turn ya'll into shouters, like hold up
    We don't really think we better, call us perfect no never
    But we glad to be call saints cause Paul called us that in the letters
    We set apart for the Savior, He's led our hearts to the Maker
    Forget the art that we making if we never love our neighbors
    You might catch us whistling, marked to the spot straight glistening
    Shining cause we filled with Him, you might wanna listen in
    Messiah came down then He reigned and He rose
    Here yeah they go with this again
    That's what makes us love our neighbors
    We not just omitting sin Writer/s: Andrew Aaron Mineo, George Ramirez, Kevin Elijah Burgess, William Lee Barefield
