The Lyrics

Yeah, my friends and I had this made up band called the Highwaters which was based on a group of guys in our middle school who were growing faster than their pants. They were a gospel group. Even though that was like over 5 years ago, I still feel inspired from time to time to write some religious parodies. it's fun
I was like, good gracious God is bodacious.
I'm gracious, knelt like I'm trying to tie laces
Looking for the right time to say my thanks
Running through church like Forrest played by Tom Hanks
Then uhh, I'm praying
And my boys'll be saying
Nelly let's get out and do some playing
Hymn singing, crying out "Jesus I'm staying!"
I need to hang around so I can talk some more
Too soon I'll be out that door
Cuz I feel like singing praise and I know this ain't know craze
And can't nobody change my ways so I'll do it all the rest of my days

I said I'm feeling God in here
So put on all your robes
(I am feeling God so I'll put my choir robes on)

Why you at church if you ain't hold yourself liable?
What good is a sermon if ya ain't reading the Bible?
I see you singing, smiling, but I think you're just idle
It's like riding a horse that's wearing no bridle.
Ask forgiveness, mean it and be true
You pray, He'll say, "I'll forgive you"
God don't wanna be played, but he won't sue
He'll just make you part of Satan stew
Hot, burning in his cauldron of sinners
Of those who diss God there'll be no winners
I'm playing for his team so I know I'll score
I'm an MVP could I ask for more?
So don't pretend you and God are tight
You know talking to a preacher on a Wednesday night
Acting like you read your verses and playing all prim
"Reverend, I think I'm close with Him!"

(2x)
I'm feeling God in here
so put on all your robes
I am feeling God so I'll put my choir robes on

Sing a little hallelujah
Say a tiny hallelujah
(Nelly just sing out)
Wanna hear hallelujah
Can ya say hallelujah?
(Nelly just shout out)
Please say hallelujah
Just say hallelujah
(Nelly just scream out)
I like hallelujah
I love hallelujah

Stop sinning, I'm hinting
I gotta friend with a pew in his basement (Huh?)
I think his name is Franklin (oh)
So let's get to it
Let's go, let's go confess our sins
Nelly has so many he'll have bruised up shins
From kneeling and telling the Man, my best Friend
Barbie's not anatomically right, neither is Ken


Sing a little hallelujah
Say a tiny hallelujah
(Nelly just sing out)
Wanna hear hallelujah
Can ya say hallelujah?
(Nelly just shout out)
Please say hallelujah
Just say hallelujah
(Nelly just scream out)
I like hallelujah
I love hallelujah
