and roll singer on the television
Giving up his music, gonna take up religion
Deserted rock and roll
To try to save his soul

Saturday night, gotta gig
My daddy was workin' nine to five
When my momma was havin' me
By the time I was half alive
I knew what I was gonna be
But I left school and grew
need somebody on their bond

Whoa, you take Maivus Staples and ole Corn Cheevers [?]
They got the good side on their bond
Oh, I been listen
tell me
I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band.

A thousand pictures can be drawn from one word
Only who is the artist
We got to agree
tell me
I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band

A thousand pictures can be drawn from one word
Only who is the artist
We got to agree
A thousand
me

I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band

How can we understand
Riots by the people for the people
Who are only destroying themselves
And when you
singer
On the television
Givin' up his music, gonna take up religion

Abandoned rock and roll to try to save his soul

Saturday night, got a gig with
looking over me from my bedroom wall.

Two three four

[Chorus]
When the world's got you by the fucking throat 
Who'd you want in your corner? Axl
& I'll tell convienient lies
I've got a lot of staples
And to much....
Time to trash a band
They fucking blow
Since I wasn't on the list
I
And I've got 21 reasons
I've got 21 reasons
And there go 22 singers on the run

First I saw the digits crawling
Slowly up the rocky coast
Just some separated
Choir:  Do you want your love life to bloom? ...

Singer: 1. Do you lose your charm,
                When ya raise your arm?

(chorus)
Then run
and it ain't no crack
And it really don't matter if you're white or black, I

Want to take you there like the Staple Singers
Put something in the tank
Rippin any muthafucka that steps towards me
Yeah, I got power like floors be
Yo, check it out y'all

Real nigga quotes I tote, got some shit on the free
and it ain't no crack
And it really don't matter if you're white or black, I

Want to take you there like the Staple Singers
Put something in the tank
've been to San Antone
But the worst by far than I've ever been was when I've been alone
Tomorrow night I'm in Austin I've got some old friends there
Cause
the river
Cause deep down plumbing life is too cramped for me
I got wood legs and bow legs and no legs at all
Goddamn! Would you accept a collect call?
Oh
mine
I got parents like a mirrors
May justify on their own parents
I had a great on wonder why it?
...a sick salvation
...on my mind
Now I
One day at a time, you got to try
Open your eye, it will come
By and by, when you try
By His grace, by His grace
By His grace, by His grace.
I've got that old time religion got that old time religion
And that is why I'm satisfied
Now you ask me if I'm happy do I have peace within
Do I
and it ain't no crack
And it really don't matter if you're white or black, I

Want to take you there like the Staple Singers
Put something in the tank
to a tape by slayer
Parked in a parking lot behind burger king
Eatin a raw pack of chicken wings
With blood on my fingers I blast a CD by the staple
thinkin' he can make it happen
I'll be outside of Staples with the bitches and phantom. 
Mu'fucka!

She had to get a pimp,
She couldn't make it on her
Rent collectors at my door

You got your religion
I got my addictions
We got dirty dishes in the sink
Looking from the window
Kissing in
singing out of tune, but the beats in time and it's us who make the noise)

I'm talking for free
I can't stop myself, it's a new religion
I've got
my daughter"

She and I went on the run
Don't care about religion
I'm gonna marry the woman I love
Down by the Wexford border

She was Nancy
