The Lyrics

When your up and bothered
'Cause you hurt your fellow man
And sorry, oh sorry don't make it right
Fold your hands on bended knee
And let the power of prayer
Transfigure your dark and sleepless night

You just fall, to your knees
And pray for a measure of peace
You should summon the savior of men
Crocodiles don't often bawl
He's got grace to brace your fall
In your dee-spair
Go make amends

If the terr-a firma
Turns soft and full of clods
And the old cliches begin to grate
Let the cookies crumble
And fall before your God
Then He'll help you broken and prostrate

You just fall into line
'Cause you know you have been unkind
No more funnin, youngin no, no
He died for your sin
Used to be standing so tall
Bawling since you've had your fall
And how He cares, for you still

You'll feel good you know
When you make amends
Victims can be consoled
By Visa® or amnesia
You can bless their souls if you’re Christian
Oh, but are you Christian?

Don't you fall, from God's grace
Put a smile back onto your face
You’re still human, tryin', yes, yes, yes
To make good your sin
Sinners, saints, Mary and Paul
All of us have had a fall
And how He cares, for us still
You make amends
You make amends
You'll feel good you know
You make amends
You'll feel good you know
You'll feel good you know
You'll feel good you know
You make amends
Oh yeah now, you make amends,
Yeah baby, you make amends,
Oh yeah, you make amends.
