IS THAT RELIGION? Maceo Pinkard (m) Mitchell Parish (l) 1930 as rec by Mildred Bailey w The Dorsey Bros Orch April 8th 1933 New York Brethren, sistren, Hear my preachin'; Brethren, sistren, Good book teachin' Ain't been reachin' you! Ah sisters, you strut the aisle, You all dressed to kill with style, You wink your eye and smile, Is that religion? One thing I do despise; You catch your deacon's eyes, That's where thec weakness lies! Is that religion? You see the parson vexed, You got him so perplexed, His mind ain't on his text! Is that religion? There's some cheatin' gonna be did, And you well done took off the lid, Tryin' to get your partner to skid! Is that religion? Brethren, sistren, Ain't it a shame to trifle on Sunday, Ain't it a shame! Ain't it a shame to trifle on Sunday, Ain't it a shame! Ain't it a shame to trifle on Sunday, When you got Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday too, Ain't it a shame! 'Cause sisters, you strut the aisle, You all dressed to kill with style, You wink your eye and smile, Is that religion? One thing I do despise; You catch your deacon's eyes, And that's where thec weakness lies! Is that religion? You see the parson vexed, You got him so perplexed, His mind ain't on his text! Is that religion? There's some cheatin' gonna be did, And you well done took off the lid, Tryin' to get your partner to skid! I'm askin' you, Remindin' you too! Now tell me true, Is that what you call religion, huh? (Contributed by Peter Akers - February 2011)
