The Lyrics

‘Round a neck next to you
Hangs a bright, shiny cross,
An emblem of profit and gain.
And I love that bright cross.
It’s my dearest and best.
From a world that has brought me no pain.

Refrain:
And I’ll cherish that bright, shiny cross.
It’s a trophy I’ll never lay down.
I will cling to that bright, shiny cross,
‘til a prettier one comes around.

Oh that bright, shiny cross
So admired by the world,
Holds a wondrous attraction for me.
For it’s with that bright cross,
Jesus shows me his love
‘Cause it says I’m his bestest buddy.

[Refrain]

In that bright, shiny cross,
Whose gems make it to shine
A delirious beauty I see.
‘Cause I wear that bright cross
Just to show everyone,
That I’m Jesus’ favorite you seeeeeeeee…

[Refrain]

Original and funny. 555s for OS choice alone. I pray, er, I mean hope, you're not serious. I have a parody of this on file, but dare not post it for fear of crucifixion.

My Dad used to sing "On a hill far away, stood an old Chevrolet, its tires were as flat as a board. There's a hole in the tank, and the darned thing won't crank. Some day it will turn to a Ford".
