Secular Songs

Album: Into the Blues (2007)
  • They're singing secular songs in the churches
    And there's not a of word of God
    It's all Schubert and Beethoven
    Oh and lots of French love songs
    So let's go down on Sunday morning
    To hear that Jacob sermon read
    Everybody dressed in their finest church apparel baby
    Listening to the preacher eulogies

    Then we'll pray
    Pray
    Pray
    Yea we'll pray
    Our souls will rise upon that day
    Pray
    Pray
    Pray
    Pray we change to better ways

    They're telling stories about love's passion
    All about ménage a trois
    Hear those heart felt Lieder
    Coming from that deep bass voice
    And whilst some sleep though this music
    Others weep for all the pain
    As they sing secular song in the churches baby
    It's time to kneel let's kneel and pray


    Yea we'll pray
    Pray
    Pray
    Pray
    Our souls will rise upon that day
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Pray we change to better ways

    Yea we'll pray
    Pray
    Pray
    Pray
    Pray
    Pray
    Pray we change to better ways
