Patti LaBelle

"Love 89"

[Verse 1]
Sally snuck in
Back of the church
Her skirt showing off her legs
High-heeled shoes
Lipstick smeared
No money in her pocket she was too proud to beg
Raw hands gloved
Said she was dirt
Sally was hurt with every word they'd say
"Hallo queen of England"
Sally was so weak
And how she does her best work in bed
Best work in bed

[Refrain]
Hey, hey hey
Wait a minute now

[Verse 2]
Reverend James thumped
His fist on the Bible
As he screamed at everyone
'Bout the state of kids
And rock and roll music
Oh, never will they see the sun
But if the reverend could stop throwing so many stones
See the lesson we've got to learn
And a new love's foundation
And help this generation
Find the worth that's worth their earning
Worth their earning

[Refrain]
Hey, hey hey

[Verse 3]
Some people love to spend time for Jesus
But got no time for the sinners that be

[Chorus]
And even though He shed His blood
To spread the word of love
That makes each and everyone of us free
Free to sing in the choir
Free to stand up tall
But still some people ain't got no time for sinners at all

[Refrain]
Everybody say hey
Hey, hey
Take it away, hey

[Verse 4]
They say that Sally don't belong to folks that are decent
No, no she don't belong at all
So Sally lit a candle for all the sweet tears of Mary
And took a seat by the wall
Singing don't make time for Jesus
Unless you got time for the sinners that be

[Chorus]
You know He shed His blood
To spread the word love
That makes each and everyone of us free
To sing in the choir
Sing, and to stand up tall
But still some people ain't got no time for sinners at all

[Refrain]
Hey, hey hey
Hey, hey hey

[Outro]
People ain't got time
People ain't got time
People ain't got time
Oh, time for sinners
People ain't got time
Oh, time
Oh Lord, people ain't got time
Oh
Stop throwing stones
We've got a lesson to learn
Yes we do, y'all
Sweet love
