Sunday Jam

It’s just one song, but it’s an interesting one. Church Lady by Dennis Ferrer. I usually crank this when I’m on the treadmill about half-way through my session to keep myself motivated because the beat is bangin’! I used to get excited about the chorus but I had never really paid such close scrutiny to the lyrics until about two weeks ago. This is a deep house track but I think it could also accompany album compilations known as gospel house because the lyrics are a sermon in and of themselves: 

Church Lady, can you spare her a song 
Cos Glory Hallelujah, ain’t enough for her wrongs
Church Lady, can she borrow some time
Cos she needs to sit down and reflect on her behind.
She can’t see the forest for the trees
She got a child who’s only three
And no child is deserving
Of an open door policy. 

Church Lady, can you talk her some sense
She may be a friend of mine 
But her values are worth two cents.
I’ve tried my point of view
All of her friends have tried it too 
So Church Lady, sing her that song, sing her that song.

Glory, (Hallelujah) Hallelujah,
Let them show you the way
(Let ’em show you the way)
Glory, (Hallelujah) Hallelujah,
Cos That’s already been paved
(Already been paved)
Glory, (Hallelujah) Hallelujah,
(Let them show you)
Let them show you the way
(Ya-hay-ya-hay)
Glory, (Hallelujah) Hallelujah,
Cos That’s already been paved
(Mmmmmmmmmm)

Church Lady, can you save her a prayer 
She ain’t been home since last night
And she’s got us runnin scared.
Church Lady, do you have this emergency light
(Yes I do)
She needs to be safe from herself
She’s got her own way to find.
She can’t see the forest for the trees 
She got a child who’s only three
She’s got her head in the clouds 
Holding on to some fantasy.

Church Lady, you better find her a hymn
She’s going down that road
She’ll be early seeing Him.
I’ve tried my point of view 
All of her friends tried it too 
So Church Lady, sing her that song, sing her that song.

Repeat Chorus…
