Lurkin' Like You Are Lost Blues

(parody of "Workin' At the Car Wash Blues" by Jim Croce)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: A friend named Sam asked me if I could write a parody to this song, so I did. That'll teach me to take requests; he never mentioned it again. But it came out okay, so maybe someone else out there will like it. It's about backsliding, and I'm sorry to say I know a few people to whom it applies.


Well, you had just got out from the account of sinning,
And you prayed in faith 'cause works fall short.
Thought that you would live in Jesus in full submission,
But I wonder, was it all smooth talk?
You wouldn't listen to the fact that your life is heinous;
The Word says, "World or God, you got to choose."
Now you got them Heavenly distressing, no-faith, transgressing, lurkin' like you are lost blues.

Well, you should be going in your own volition
To God, spending time in prayer,
Talking in faith through the Holy Spirit,
Sayin', "Thank you, Lord," and casting your cares.
Instead, you're ducking quiet time, offended by the tag
Of "walk in faith," you'll just refuse
With them Heavenly distressing, no-faith, transgressing,
Lurkin' like you are lost blues.

You know a Christian should have humility; he should be broken by the Savior's scars.
But you don't want to get straight, you like your natural state
And you're snubbing Bible truth from afar.

Well, all I can do is bow my head and pray you'll believe God is true.
For shirkin' His command and the Spirit's call is an undistinguished way to lose.
Now, baby, don't expect receivin' all the peace God is givin' if you break all of Jesus' taboos
'Cause you got them Heavenly distressing, no-faith, transgressing, lurkin' like you are lost blues.
