PRAISE THE LORD AND SEND ME THE MONEY (Hugh Moffatt) Bobby Bare - 1982 Praise the Lord and send me the money I'm happy, you can be happy too If you praise the Lord and send me the money That's what Jesus wants you to do Late one night while watchin' Columbo I fell asleep till quarter past three When just like a vision I thought I was dreaming I heard the voice of a man on TV He said praise the Lord and send me the money I'm happy, you can be happy too If you praise the Lord and send me the money That's what Jesus wants you to do I sat straight up and reached for my checkbook Tremblin' with guilt, took my Bic pen in hand I wrote out the figures, a one and four zeros Went out and mailed it with a note to that man And I said praise the Lord, I'm sendin' the money I surely wanna be happy like you Praise the Lord, I'm sendin' the money If that's what Jesus wants me to do I woke up late for work the next mornin' I could not believe what I had done Wrote a hot check to Jesus for ten thousand dollars And my bank account only held thirty-one I got a second job at a gasoline station I'm savin' my money to pay what I owe I don't get much sleep 'cause I stay up late watchin' All of the folks on the Lord's TV show Sayin' praise the Lord and send me the money I'm so happy, you can be happy too If you praise the Lord and send me the money That's what Jesus wants you to do Praise the Lord, Iím sendin' the money (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2011)
