The Lyrics

even though he has style
I just cant stand this guy
but we have this great faith, so to church we must drive
and the collection plates will require a fee
it wont take a long while
but its always a sermon to me

They still force you to give
'cause if you don't, they'll concede you
and they read from the book
and they force you to sing too
and they'll play awful music, and sing out of key
in this faith I believe
but its always a sermon to me

oh, then they will bring up hell
heaven's gate's your reward
for serving this time
oh, and then you will be let out
make you confess your sins
it is real boring, you'll find

and they read a scripture
'bout the Garden of Eden
even though its not that bad
Id rather be sleepin'
and then the Eucharist
tastes like cardboard, you see
even though you drink wine
its always a sermon to me

then the preacher acts kind
when he sings like a fool
but you cant have some TV's
its against church rules
and the Host could be chocolate
then it would be tasty
and the worst they could do
is make church seem cool
'cause its always a sermon to me

I gave you fives just for the chocolate host part--I always thought they should give you some cheese or something to dip it in: "The body of Christ...with some zesty nacho sauce!"

I *want * to *want* to go to church. Your song comes very close to a diagnosis of my problem. Good job!
