Excuses, Excuses

Excuses, Excuses
You hear them everyday
Now the devil he’ll supply them if in church you stay away
When people come to worship God, the devil always loses
So to keep those folks away from church, he offers them excuses
Well in the summer it’s too hot
In the winter it’s too cold
In the springtime when the weather’s just right, you find some place else to go
Well it’s up to the mountains or down to the beach or to visit some old friend
Or just stay home and kind relax and hope some of the kid folks start droppin’ in
Well those church benches; they’re too hard
And that song leader’s way too loud
Well you know how nervous you get when you’re sittin’ in a great big crowd
Now the doctor told you to watch them crowds, they’ll set you back
But you go to that ol’ ball game ’cause they say it helps you to relax
Well a headache Sunday morning
And a backache Sunday night
But by work time Monday morning, you’re feeling quite all right
Well one of the children has a cold, pneumonia do you suppose?
Why, the whole family has to stay home! (Just to blow that poor kid’s nose)

Repeat Chorus (x2)

To keep those folks away from church, he offers them excuses!
