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

"Sloop John B" is a traditional West Indian folk song, and it was a huge hit for The Beach Boys in 1966. They tweaked the lyric, "This is the worst trip since I've been born" to "...I've ever been on" as a wink to acid culture.
The TV show Cheers was nearly canceled after its first season, but the theme song, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name," was very popular. To satisfy viewer demand, the theme was made into a full song and released as a single.
