The Lyrics

Mix Jesus, Elvis and Vegas ...I think this is what you get
My Christ said he's gonna steal my soul
Gonna shield my soul from fire
Pot o'gold, wads of money, gems and pretty things yearned
Won't earn flight wings desired

Break a vow and crack commandments, sinner beware
There's a black hell hole, red devil - I swear
Kneel at the cross level, say your best prayer

Sweet Jesus ! Please Save Us -- Jesus ! Please Save Us

God, I wish to be reborn, don't want anymore doubts the other way
Believin' that we might be forlorn, we shouldn't keep a-goin' astray

Followed rat-pack, old joker, insolent fools
Lost fortunes gettin' sauced on gamblin' stools
Laughed while breakin' hearts, forsaking love's rules

Jesus ! Please Save Us -- Jesus ! Please Save Us

Meek Rock of Ages shocked the Zion nation
Brought forth a New Testamentation
That taught his Popes how to reign !

Glorious pages, turnin' haze into sunshine
Assurin' faith is the lifeline
Those who've read it once, are walkin' around Born Again !

God blessin' everyone they're greetin' under the Sun
Drivin' cars that are wearin' Fish signs
To hang out with folk alike and other church members
Fillin' pews at Gospel times

They're gonna sing out every hymn they got
Guiding light, he's Johnny on the spot
Aimin' sights toward Heaven, they're takin' there shots, sir

Jesus ! Please Save Us -- Jesus ! Please Save Us ! Jesus ! Please Save Us !
Jesus ! Jesus ! He Saves Us

AFW and Jonathan - Thanks for your kind review. This song had lots of key changes ,so it was hard to make it flow...I did my best to match pacing....Two weeks later I was happy....I envisioned an Elvis Impersonator singing it at a local casino lounge in Milwaukee and only 3 people clap......Thank you very much and God bless you everyone
