The Lyrics

This is my musical tribute to Twila Paris, the greatest gospel artist in modern America. Remember, Amy Grant rarely, if ever, appears in songbooks!
Stanza I.
Throw Amy Grant off and listen to me!
It's time for you to get some good songs!
It's time for Twila Paris to come in for worship
To worship Yahweh all day long!
You better go to your own Christian bookstore;
You better buy the CD Beyond a Dream!
You better sell TP so you can see
That Amy Grant just isn't what she seems!
You better hear now "We Will Glorify"
When Grant and Smitty aren't around!
You'll get stuck on the songs of Twila Paris if you try!

Buy Twila Paris!
Don't buy Sandi Patty!
Please don't buy Ms. Amy Grant!
What can you do? dare to be Twila!
Please--no buying Smitty!
Please--True North go and buy!
Listen to "The Time Is Now!"
I'll show you how you can dare to be Twila!
I love "God Is in Control!"
You just can't miss "Watch and Pray!"
You should store up Twila albums and then play them every day!
Dare to be Twila!
Come on and dare to be Twila!
It's so easy to hear--dare to be Twila!
She knows the King is near--let's go!

Stanza II.
It's time to listen to "The Warrior Is a Child!"
So can I have disciples now?
There's lots of time to list to "How Beautiful"
And it doesn't matter when or how!
Just sit back with your family and join Twila's toughs!
Play some Twila CDs when the road is rough!
Keep buying her CDs till the stores have enough!
It's not tough! you can dare to be Twila!
It's in "What Did He Die For?"
And the album Where I Stand!
Just like I said, if you buy Twila, never will the songs go bad!
Dare to be Twila! (yes!)
Why don't you dare to be Twila?
It's so easy to hear--dare to be Twila!
She knows the King is near--dare to be Twila!
If you want uplifting songs,
I am not the one for you!
But Twila is; she can speak too!
She may have no name recognition,
But she'll really start your faith and be gospel's ignition!
The choice is yours to make, so what are you to take?
Dare to be Twila! dare to be Twila!
What did I say? dare to be Twila!
Tell me! what did I say? dare to be Twila!
It's all right! dare to be Twila!
We can be Twila all night! dare to be Twila!
Come on, join the crowd! dare to be Twila!
Live it out loud! dare to be Twila!
I can't hear you! dare to be Twila!
Okay! I can hear you! dare to be Twila!
Let's go! dare to be Twila!
Dare to be Twila! (8x)
Take 'em down, Twila!!!
