Jesus Wouldn't Do It That Way
(Kurt Fortmeyer)
Dad Zone Music ASCAP

To that pill-head on the radio calling women whores
Jesus wouldn't do it that way
And the politicians sending other people's kids to war
Jesus wouldn't do it that way
You'll help the rich get richer and the poor deeper in debt
Spread your venom like a virus on the internet
I am not a gambling man but I'm willing to bet
Jesus wouldn't do it that way

Jesus wouldn't do it that way
That's not what the Bible has to say
You can talk that talk but you sure don't walk that walk
Jesus wouldn't do it that way

You preach about forgiveness while harboring a grudge
Jesus wouldn't do it that way
Pronouncing condemnations as if you are fit to judge
Jesus wouldn't do it that way
You've already got more money than you'll ever need
But you'll let folks go hungry while you've got too much to eat
And your mouth is full of curses for the homeless on the street
Jesus wouldn't do it that way

Jesus wouldn't do it that way
That's not what the Bible has to say
You can talk that talk but you sure don't walk that walk
Jesus wouldn't do it that way

You hate Muslims, gays, and Mexicans, and wish they all were dead
You'd lie about your neighbor if it helps you get ahead
But don't cherry-pick your s_c_r_i_p_tures 'cause I know what he said
Jesus wouldn't do it that way

Jesus wouldn't do it that way
That's not what the Bible has to say
You can talk that talk but you sure don't walk that walk
Jesus wouldn't do it that way
Jesus wouldn't do it that way
My Jesus wouldn't do it that way
