The Lyrics


Your idea of fashion
Evokes feelings of compassion
I say a lengthy prayer for you
And while at church on Sunday
And before going in on Monday
I say a lengthy prayer for you


Embarrassed, embarrassed, for you while at work
And I can’t tell you
I’m hard pressed, to suppress, these urges that irk
No, one can help you
Awareness and fairness are clashing daily
To work beside you
Is truly a challenge for me


You smell rather earthy
And you don’t act all that girly
I’ll say a lengthy prayer for you
At work I don’t have time
But after five thirty you’ll find
I’ll say a lengthy prayer for you


Your fragrance, that fragrance, just burns up my nose
I hate to tell you
You’re flagrant, impatient, and needin’ new clothes
Oh, I can’t help you
I’m Christian, you’re Wiccan, that’s how we believe
To work beside you
Is truly temptation to leave


But Jesus, my Jesus, still reigns in my heart
And I still love you
No matter, how tattered, you flatter your parts
Oh, He still loves you
Coworkers, coworkers, that’s how we must be
Heaven without you
Would truly be heartbreak for me


Your wardrobe’s atrocious, (atrocious)
To me you seem a bit uncouth!
What is the truth?
I will pray for you (suffer my prayer)
Suffer my prayer K? (suffer my prayer)
Wear what you want to (suffer my prayer)
Suffer my prayer K? (suffer my prayer)


A Christian, should listen, and act from the heart
So I still love you
Derision, divisions, are missin’ key parts
Oh, how He loves you
There’s mansions, in heaven, for both you and me
To see you there too
Would really be something to see (ooooooh)


Our freedoms are precious, (so precious)
Go dress and act how you want to!
Please think it through
This is my prayer (suffer my prayer)
Suffer my prayer in time (suffer my prayer)
This is my prayer (suffer my prayer)
Suffer my prayer in time (suffer my prayer)
Say you’ll think it through (suffer my prayer)
Suffer my prayer (suffer my prayer)
