Paroles de Mississippi Squirrel Revival

Well when I was a kid
I'd take a trip every summer down to Mississippi
To visit my granny in her ante bellum world
I'd run barefooted all day long climbing trees free as a song
One day I happened to catch myself a squirrel
Well I stuffed him down in an old shoebox
Punched a couple of holes in the top
When Sunday came
I snuck him into church
I was sittin' way back in the very last pew
Showin' him to my good buddy Hugh
When that squirrel got loose and went totally berserk
What happened next is hard to tell
Some thought it was heaven others thought it was Hell
But the fact that something was among us was plain to see
As the choir sang
I surrender all
The squirrel ran up
Harv Newlan's coveralls
Harv leaped to his feet and said somethin's
Got a hold on me yo
The day the squirrel went berserk
In the first self-righteous Church
In that sleepy little town of Pascagoula
It was a fight for survival that broke out in revival
They were jumpin' pews and shouting Hallelujah
Well Harv hit the aisles dancin' and screamin' some thought he had religion
Others thought he had a demon and Harv thought
He had a weed eater loose in his Fruit-of-the-looms
He fell to his knees to plead and beg
And the squirrel ran out of his britches leg
Unobserved to the other side of the room
All the way down to the amen pew
Where sat sister
Bertha better-than-you
Who'd been watchin' all the commotion with sadistic glee
But you you should've seen the look in her eyes
When that squirrel jumped her garters and crossed her thighs
She jumped to her feet and said Lord have mercy on me
As the squirrel made laps inside her dress
She began to cry and then to confess
To sins that would make a sailor blush with shame
She told of gossip and church dissension
But the thing that got the most attention
Was when she talked about her love life
And then she started naming names
The day the squirrel went berserk
In the first self-righteous Church
In that sleepy little town of Pascagoula
It was a fight for survival that broke out in revival
They were jumpin' pews and shouting Hallelujah
Well seven deacons and the pastor got saved
And twenty-five thousand dollars got raised
And fifty volunteered for missions in the Congo on the spot
And even without an invitation there were at least ive hundred rededications
And we all got re-baptized whether we needed it or not
Now you've heard the bible stories I guess
How he parted the waters for Moses to pass
All the miracles God has brought to this ol' world
But the one I'll remember to my dyin' day
Is how he put that church back on the narrow way
With a half-crazed
Mississippi squirrel
The day the squirrel went berserk
In the first self-righteous Church
In that sleepy little town of Pascagoula
It was a fight for survival that broke out in revival
They were jumpin' pews and shouting Hallelujah
The day the squirrel went berserk
In the first self-righteous Church
In that sleepy little town of Pascagoula
It was a fight for survival that broke out in revival
They were jumpin' pews and shouting Hallelujah
