Sally snuck n the back of the church
Her skirt showin' off her legs
High-heel shoes and lipstick smeared
No money n her pocket but she was 2 proud 2 beg
The old hens clucked, they said she was dirt
Sally was hurt with every word they said
How her windows ain't clean, how the yard's full of weeds
And how she does her best work n bed, best work n bed
Huh
Hey, hey hey

Down
Wait a minute (Huh)
Reverend James thumped his fist on the Bible
As he screamed at everyone (Oh yes he did, y'all)
Gotta save the kids from rock 'n' roll music (Save 'em)
Or never will they see the sun (Ooh, see the sun)
But if the reverend could stop throwin' so many stones
And see the lesson we've got 2 learn (Gotta, gotta)
That a new love salvation can help this generation
Find a Word that's worth learning (New power generation)
Worth learning
Hey, ow!
Hey hey

Looka here
Some people love 2 make time 4 Jesus
But got no time 4 the sinners that b
And even though He shed His blood 2 spread the word love
That make each and everyone of us free
Free 2 sing n the choir, free 2 stand up tall (Stand up!)
But still some people ain't got no time 4 sinners at all
Hey, haha
Hey hey
Enough said, brass
Ooh yeah, c'mon

They say that Sally don't belong with folks that r decent
No, she don't belong at all
So Sally lit a candle 4 all the sweet tears of Mary
And took a seat by the wall

Singin' don't make time 4 Jesus
Unless U got time 4 the sinners that b, huh
U know He shed His blood 2 spread the word love
2 make each and everyone of us free
Free 2 sing n the choir, free 2 stand up tall
But people ain't got time 4 sinners at all
Hey, hey hey
Say it 1 more time
Hey, hey hey
Ah, ooh

People ain't got time (No)
People ain't got time 4 sinners (Ooh)
People ain't got time (Ooh, oh no)
People ain't got time 4 sinners (Ooh)
Stop throwing stones
We've got a lesson, we've got a lesson 2 learn (Ooh)
Ahh, ah

Oh
Some people wanna claim space n His heaven above
But they're the last ones 2 spread His Word love
Love, love
Say it with me now, love
Oh Lord, uh, love
I know U can do it, love
Yeah, love
Oh (Love)
Ow! C'mon...! (Love)
Come on!
Yeah...
