I Must Confess

John E Dosher

 

I think ungodly thoughts

I speak ungodly words

Sometimes I do ungodly deeds

As you’ve most surely heard

 

Sometimes I lie sometimes I cheat

Sometimes I tell the truth

Sometimes I hate sometimes I brag

About a misspent youth

 

But I’d love to be an angel and run around fixin’ lives

But I’m just an average devil like any other guy

I must confess, I must confess

I must confess, I must confess

 

Sometimes I have grand visions,

Proclaim myself the king

Sometimes I crave a violent death

To bring me to my end

 

Sometimes I look at women

Touch them and get burned

Sometimes I just use them

For my pleasure and my fun

 

I don’t always love my fellow man the way I should

I don’t always care about what’s evil and what’s good

I must confess, I must confess

I must confess, I must confess

 

They tell me that confession

Heals a sinner’s soul

Cleans a dirty spirit

So I’m doin’ what I’m told

 

I’ve cheated at Canasta

Cheated on my wife

Cheated on my taxes

In another life

 

If I had another lifetime and the will to change my ways

I might come back as Jesus but I’d use a different name

I must confess, I must confess

I must confess, I must confess
