​Saved

This song is by Elkie Brooks and appears on the album Two Days Away (1977).

I used to smoke
I used to drink
I used to smoke, drink, play the numbers too
I used to smoke and drink
Smoke and drink and play the numbers too, ooh
But now I'm standing on the corner
Playing for me and you

Because I'm saved
Saved
People let me tell 'bout a
Kingdom come you know I'm
Saved
Saved
I can preach until you're deaf and dumb
I mean it's soul saving honey
Beating on the big bass drum

I used to cuss
I used to fuss
I used to cuss, fuss, bully all night long
I used to cuss and fuss
Cuss and fuss and bully all night long, ooh
But now I'm standing on the corner
You see, I know the right from wrong

Because I'm saved
Sure I'm saved
People let me tell you 'bout a
Kingdom come, you know I'm saved
Sure saved
Ooh, I can preach to you until you're deaf and dumb
I mean it's soul saving honey
Beating on the big bass drum

I used to lie
I used to cheat
I used to lie, cheat, step on people's feet
I used to lie and cheat
Lie and cheat and step on people's feet
But now I'm stepping on the floor
Salvation is my beat

Because I'm saved
Yeah I'm saved
People let me tell you 'bout a
Kingdom come, you know I'm saved
Sure saved
I will preach it to you till you're deaf and drum
I mean it's soul saving honey
Oh yeah
Saved, saved, saved
