    Hello Mrs Johnson you self righteous woman
    Sunday School teacher what brings you out slummin'
    Do you reckon the preacher would approve where you are
    Standing here vis'tin' with a back slidin' christian in a neighborhood bar
    Well yes that's my bottle and yes that's my glass
    And I see you're eye balling this pretty young lass
    It ain't none of your business but yes she's with me
    And we don't need no sermon you self righteous woman just let us be
    The Lord knows I'm drinking and running around
    And he don't need your loud mouth informing the town
    The Lord knows I'm sinning and sinning ain't right
    But me and the good Lord gonna have us a good talk later tonight

    Goodbye Mrs Johnson you self righteous biddy
    I don't need your preaching and I don't need your pity
    So go back to whatever you hypocrites do
    And when I talk to heaven be nice and I'll put in a good word for you
    Yes the Lord knows I'm drinking...
    Yes me and the good Lord gonna have us a good talk later tonight
