One Preacher Short

It's never easy when a Pastor leaves a congregation, even when it's for the best of reasons. This song's not about anyone in particular, but if it strikes too close to home for you, well, if the Elvis fits....


Well, since my Pastor left me,
I've got a bad report
My spirit's needin' liftin', 'cuz I'm
One Preacher Short, andů

There ain't no sermon, baby
No homily now, baby
One Preacher Short, and I could cry

He got a better offer
He heard a higher call
I think our congregation 
Just got dumb and dropped the ball, andů

No consolation, baby,
Missing those white robes, baby,
One Preacher short, and I could cry

A church, now, needs a shepherd
To keep its self-esteem
And a tall one really helps to make
Our basketball team, andů

We feel so cheated, baby
Not to get heated, baby
One Preacher short, and I could cry

Now, if your Pastor leaves you
To tend some other flock
Could it have been the lack of pay?  
Well, No ****, Sherlock!

Don't be so stupid, baby
Fork out some dough, now, baby
One Preacher Short, and I could cry
