(A song of pride from one who believes in performance.)
God, you owe me; I’ve been good. Check the record and you’ll see.
I’ve been faithful, as I should. Not like other guys to me.
I don’t hang with evil folks. At the church is where I’m found.
Not for me are dirty jokes, but your praises, sung out loud.
When the day of judgment comes, save me as you roust the bums.
At your side I will be found; standing tall on level ground.
