about

This is the 2013 Mastered version of the 2005 release along with a new cover.

This was relatively easy to write since I had so much source material growing up in the church. All of these songs are based off of true events though some have been slightly exaggerated.

Playing these songs live was always interesting since the audience didn't know if they should laugh, pray or tar and feather us. We played one show where a local pastor tried to shut us down. I put the live version of "Love Gift" on here because I can still feel the tension from that show. My sister dressed up like a Pentecostal and danced around the venue playing a tambourine. I wore a "Megiddo: Omega Code 2" shirt.

Please let us know if you would like us to come minister at your church.

Track Name: Pentecostal Pamela Lee
Long jean skirts and little white socks
Oh man my baby rocks
She’s my Pentecostal Pamela Lee

Got her hair all up in a bun
Oh man she’s a load of fun
She’s my Pentecostal Pamela Lee

The way she dresses man she is the bomb
She buys all of her clothes from liliesapparel.com

She doesn’t shave above the shin
She puts no makeup on her skin
She’s my Pentecostal Pamela Lee

The summer months she’s fully dressed
My baby sweats buckets
She’s my Pentecostal Pamela Lee

The way she dresses man she is the bomb
She buys all of her clothes from liliesapparel.com

I haven’t seen above her knee
She doesn’t believe in the Trinity
She’s my Oneness Pentecostal Pamela Lee
Track Name: Addin' To The Bible
Don’t dance and women shouldn't wear pants
Don’t play cards and don’t you dare play those rock and roll guitars

Paul wouldn’t have it if he were alive today
We are all so godly that we know just what he’d say

We’re addin’ to the Bible all the things it should include
We are writing a new book for our time we’ll stick it after Jude

Don’t go to the movin’ picture show
Don’t swim when the opposite sex is in the pool

Paul wouldn’t have it if he were alive today
We are all so godly that we know just what he’d say

We’re addin’ to the Bible all the things it should include
We are writing a new book for our time we’ll stick it after Jude
Track Name: We Just Want Our Crowns
I never cared much for this life
Mediocre job and a mediocre wife
We just sit and watch the time go by
We’re just waiting till we die

We just want our crowns
We know that when we die we’ll go up and not go down
That’s good enough for us brother we just want our crowns

No time for helping out the poor
And the ones in pain we just ignore
They just lead our minds astray
From the gifts we’ll receive that day

We just want our crowns
We know that when we die we’ll go up and not go down
That’s good enough for us brother we just want our crowns

I’m gonna eat all that I can
So I can leave this life of sin
Every bite I take gets me closer to
The God of love and a home that’s new
Track Name: Love Gift For The Month Of May
I have my collection it is near perfection
I haven’t missed a thing since 1987
I’ve got my Prayer of Jabez boxers
Got those Footprints in the Sand
Got that painting by Joni Eareckson Tada
You know she can’t use her hands

Oh but where is my love gift for the month of May

I called them on the telephone to see what they would say
I was hoping that they would tell me it was on the way
But they said thanks for what you’ve given but to my dismay
They told me they had run out I might check for one on Ebay
Oh where is my love gift for the month of May?

I logged on to find one and to my surprise
There was one listed but the price was way to high
I didn’t have the money no I couldn’t pay the fee
So I decided I would sell my kidney

With my kidney in the auction no it didn’t take much time
For me to buy that limited edition figurine with the Benny Hinn design

And now I’ve got my love gift for the month of May
Track Name: Sister Big Boobs
I saw you heading towards the altar
So I followed along but not for prayer
I wanted to brush by your body
And run my fingers by your hair

Hey sister big boobs maybe we can get together
God told me to tell you to wear that tight sweater

I saw you dancing in the aisle
Yeah you really made me smile
You said the joy was in your soul
How I wish you’d swing around that pole

Hey sister big boobs maybe we can get together
God told me to tell you to wear that tight sweater

Do you ever wonder why I sit with you at the singles meetings
It’s so that we can hold hands when we pray
My hands are getting sweaty
my heart is beating faster now..........
Track Name: 1611
I read the Bible next to my bed
The words really jumped into my head
I knew the path I was on was corrupt
So I gave my life to God and jumped into my truck

I passed a church holding revival
Jumped out my truck grabbing my Bible
I ran down the aisle and yelled out I’ve been saved
Waved my NIV in the air and the preacher ran my way

And said son I doubt your salvation if you learned the way from that translation
He said King James only 1611
Jesus spoke old english and they’ll speak that way in heaven
So you better learn it now if you want to hear from the Lord
Put away your butter knife and grab yourself a sword

So I asked the preacher where I could find one
He pointed to the product table outside the auditorium
I plunked down 50 bucks to make sure I was saved
And the keep my feet from the flames I even got my name engraved

Now I'm sure of my salvation not based on faith but the translation
Now I sing King James only 1611
Jesus spoke old english and they’ll speak that way in heaven
So I'm glad I learned it now so I can hear from the Lord
I put away my butter knife and grabbed myself a sword
So put away your butter knife and grab yourself a sword
