Sunday's On The Way
The demons were planning
on having a party one night
They got beer, Jack Daniels, and pretzels
A little red wine, and some white
They were celebratin'
How they crucified Christ on that tree
But Satan, the snake himself,
wasn't so at ease.
He took his crooked finger
and he dialed the phone by his bed
To call an old faithful friend
who'd know for sure if He was dead
'Hey, Grave,' Satan said,
“tell me, did my plan fail?'
Ol' Grave just laughed and said,
“The dude is dead as nails.'
On Friday night they crucified
the Lord at Calvary
But He said don't dread,
‘cause in three days
I'm gonna live again, you'll see
When problems try to bury you
and make it hard to pray
It may seem like Friday night,
but Sunday's on the way.
A tranquilizer and a horror flick
didn't calm Satan's fears
So Saturday night he called up the grave,
Scared of what he'd hear.
'Hey, Grave, what's goin' on?'
Grave says, “Man, you called me twice,
And I'll tell ya one more time, boss,
the Jew's on ice.'
The Devil said,
“Man, do you remember when
Lazarus was in his grave?'
He said, “Everything was cool,
then four days later, boom! He was raised.
And now this Jesus is much more trouble
Than anyone has been to me
And it's got me shook,
'cause He says He'll only be there three.'
Sunday mornin', Satan woke with a jump,
he was ready to blow a fuse.
He was shakin' from the tips of his pointed ears
To the toes of his pointed shoes.
He said, “Grave, tell me, is He alive?
I don't wanna lose my neck!'
The Grave said, “Your evilness,
maintain your cool... you're a wreck.'
The Grave said,
“Now, uh, cool your jets, big 'D',
my sting is still intact.
You see, Jesus is dead forever, man,
He ain't never comin' back.
So just mellow out, man, go drink up,
or shoot up, but just leave me alone,
And I'll catch you la...
Oh no, man... oh no, oh no!
Somebody's messin' with the stone!
Then the stone was pushed away,
and it bounced a time or two,
And an angel stepped outside, said,
“Hey I'm Gabriel, who are you?
If you're wond'rin' where the Lord is
at this very hour
I'll tell ya He's alive and well
with resurrection power!
