    Well, the church burned down and no one knew
    what Pentecost Baptist was gonna do
    the Sunday brimstone got so dadgum hot
    it burned up a church bus in the parkin' lot

    In a panic the reverend Dr. White
    called up an ex-member that hadn't lived right
    he owned Joe's beer joint right across the fence
    it's the same Joe's he'd preached against...

    He said, "I don't really want to be a hypocrite,
    but I got a Sunday school class about to have fits.
    We're all excited about revival week,
    and moved by the spirit, so to speak.

    With all the souls we saved and money we spent,
    we thought God told us to sell that tent...
    I got a famous evangelist supposed to come
    and done run out of chairs, will you loan us some?"

    Joe says, "Well you can just use the whole dang place...
    A-9 on the jukebox is "Amazing Grace"
    I ain't supposed to open because of them 'blue laws'
    but I'll open tonight if it's alright with y'all."

    Preacher said, "Well, I reckon it'd be OK,
    the good Lord works in mysterious ways.
    I was gonna talk about Joshua, Judges and Ruth
    and I reckon I could do it from the DJ booth."

    At the First Baptist Bar and Grill
    it's the only church in the bible belt
    that smells like a whiskey still...
    when the sinners finish one more round,
    we'll have dinner on the ground,
    then go inside and pray we don't get killed.

    The evangelist came with a well-dressed choir,
    they showed up around happy hour,
    looked around the joint and didn't take it real well...
    said, "The White ministry has gone to hell"

    Ms. Mills that taught youth Sunday school
    and two deacons in the back room shootin' pool
    were sharin' the Lord with a Jim Beam rep
    who was teachin' Ms. Mills some line dance steps...

    Reverend White was readin' from the book of Luke
    to a tall, drunk trucker about to puke
    he had John 3:16 memorized
    tryin' to dry him out to get him baptized...

    The evangelist yelled about the lights and the beer
    said, "White, you can't save any souls in here...
    this place ain't nothin' but a den of sin...
    ain't the kind of place Baptists ought to be in!"

    Preacher said, "Well we don't really need y'all here
    You didn't do a very good job last year,
    you only saved one sinner, that's Todd McGuire,
    the little SOB that set my church on fire!"

    "Joe's beer joint has done been revived,
    only been here an hour, and I done saved five.
    Sure, it's got mirrors and a big dance floor,
    but I finally found the flock God called me for."

    They're at the First Baptist Bar and Grill
    it's the only church in the bible belt that smells like a whisky still not a stained glass window anywhere in site,
    just a blood-stained floor and neon lights,
    and the communion wine in here is always chilled.

    We're here every Sunday; we're livin' large;
    We're the only church with a cover charge.
    And if you don't like our doctrine and think we ain't devout,
    we'll have our bouncer throw your butt out ...
    of the First Baptist Bar and Grill

    (amen sister!)
