​Missionary Man

This song is by Ghost and appears on the EP Popestar (2016).

Well I was born an original sinner
I was born from original sin
And if I had a dollar bill for all the things I've done
There'd be a mountain of money piled up to my chin, hey

My mother told me good, my mother told me strong
She said, "Be true to yourself and you can't go wrong.
But there's just one thing that you must understand.
You can fool with your brother
But don't mess with a missionary man.
Don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man."

Oh, the missionary man, he's got God on his side
He's got the saints and apostles backing up from behind
Black eyed looks from those Bible books
He's a man with a mission, got a serious mind

There was a woman in the jungle and a monkey on a tree
The missionary man, he was following me
He said, "Stop what you're doing, get down upon your knees.
I've a message for you that you better believe."

Ah yeah
Hey
Uh
Hey, uh

Well I was born an original sinner
I was born from original sin
And if I had a dollar bill for all the things I've done
There'd be a mountain of money

Don't mess with a missionary man
A missionary man
A missionary man
A missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man
