The Christian lyrics

By: jimmy buffett
1971
Chorus:
Its a hell of a time to be thinking about heaven
Didnt you forget the golden rule
Youve been acting like jesus owes you a favor
But hes a little smart for you to fool

You complain how you forgets the gospel
You remind them seek and you shall find
Maybe youth will have a time for seeking
After they clean up what you left behind

Chorus:
cause its a hell of a time to be thinking about heaven
Didnt you forget the golden rule
Youve been acting like jesus owes you a favor
But hes a little smart for you to fool

You were right there when the plate was passed last sunday
Thats the second time youve been to church all year
Could you really call yourself a christian
If charity cost half as much as beer
Hey

You pray a little more as you grow older
You get religion as your hair turns gray
But you dont need to worry about hereafter
Just worry what youre going to do today

Chorus:
cause its a hell of a time to be thinking about heaven
Didnt you forget the golden rule
Youve been acting like jesus owes you a favor
But hes a little smart for you to fool
Yes my friend I think youve blown your cool
Hey
