Those crazy Christians, I was gonna sleep in today 
But the church bells woke me up and they’re a half a mile away
 Those crazy Christians, dressed up drivin’ down my street 
Get their weekly dose of guilt before they head to Applebee’s

They pray before they eat and they pray before they snore 
They pray before a football game and every time they score  Every untimely passing, every dear departed soul
Is just another good excuse to bake a casserole 

 Those crazy Christians, go and jump on some airplane 
And fly to Africa or Haiti, risk their lives in Jesus’ name
No, they ain’t the late night party kind
They curse the devil’s whisky while they drink the Savior’s wine

A famous TV preacher has a big affair and then
One tearful confession and he’s born again again
 Someone yells hallelujah and they shout and clap and sing
It’s like they can’t wait to forgive someone for just about anything
 Those crazy Christians 

 Instead of being outside on this sunny afternoon
They’re by the bedside of a stranger in a cold hospital room
And every now and then they meet a poor lost soul like me
Who’s not quite sure just who or what or how he ought to be
They march him down the aisle and then the next thing that you know
They dunk him in the water and here comes another one of those crazy Christians 

They look to heaven their whole life
And I think what if they’re wrong but what if they’re right 
You know it’s funny, much as I’m baffled by it all
If I ever really needed help, well you know who I’d call
Is those crazy Christians
