  • I knew a man, that once was a sinner
    I knew a man, that once was a drunk
    I knew a man, that once was a loser
    He went out in the woods and made an altar out of a stump

    And me and Jesus got our own thing going
    Me and Jesus got it all worked out
    Me and Jesus got our own thing going
    And we don't need anybody to tell us what it's all about

    We can't afford no fancy preaching
    We can't afford no fancy church
    We can't afford no fancy singing
    But don't you know God's got a lot of good people out doing his work

    And me and Jesus got our own thing going
    Me and Jesus got it all worked out
    Me and Jesus got our own thing going
    And we don't need anybody to tell us what it's all about

    Me and Jesus got our own thing going
    Me and Jesus got it all worked out
    Me and Jesus got our own thing going
    And we don't need anybody to tell us what it's all about Writer/s: TOM HALL

Allen Toussaint - "Southern Nights"They're Playing My Song

Susanna Hoffs - "Eternal Flame"

Susanna Hoffs - "Eternal Flame"They're Playing My Song

The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
