Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:10-13 KJV

Pastors Will Say We're in Love (Parody)

Pastors Will Say We’re in Love

(Apologies to Rogers and Hammerstein, and to musicians in general. Dedicated to the music director in _________.)

Why do they think up stories that link my name with yours?
Why do the pastors chatter all day, behind their doors?
I know a way to prove what they say is quite untrue.
Here is the gist, a practical list of "don'ts" for you.

Don't throw your smiles at me
Don't please my choirs too much
Don't laugh at my jokes too much
Pastors will say we're in love!
Don't sigh and gaze at me
Not in the sacristry
Your eyes mustn’t fix on me!
Pastors will say we're in love!

Don't start with those bulletin quotes
Smile when you look up above.
Sweetheart don’t pass me notes
Pastors will say we're in love.
Don't praise preludes too much
Don't look so proud with me
Don't laugh out so loud with me
Pastors will say we're in love!

Don't take my side too much
Don't keep your hands on mine
Your hand feels so grand in mine
Pastors will say we're in love!
Don't pray all night with me
Till the stars fade from above.
They'll see it's alright with me
Pastors will say we're in love.
