  • Hello Mrs. Johnson
    You self-righteous woman
    Sunday School teacher
    What brings you out slumming
    Do you reckon the preacher
    Would approve where you are
    Standing here visiting
    With a back-sliding Christian
    In a neighborhood bar
    Well yes that's my bottle
    And yes that's my glass
    And I see you're eyeballing
    This pretty young lass
    It ain't none of your business
    But yes she's with me
    And we don't need no sermon
    You self-righteous woman
    Just let us be

    The Lord knows I'm drinking
    (The Lord knows I'm drinking)
    And running around
    (And running around)
    And He don't need your
    Loud mouth informing the town
    The Lord knows I'm sinning
    (The Lord knows I'm sinning)
    And sinning ain't right
    (And sinning ain't right)
    But me and the Good Lord's gonna
    Have us a good talk later tonight

    Goodbye Mrs. Johnson
    You self-righteous biddy
    I don't need your preaching
    And I don't need your pity
    So go back to whatever
    You hypocrites do
    And when I talk to Heaven
    Be nice and I'll put in
    A good word for you

    The Lord knows I'm drinking
    (The Lord knows I'm drinking)
    And running around
    (And running around)
    And He don't need your
    Loud mouth informing the town
    The Lord knows I'm sinning
    (The Lord knows I'm sinning)
    And sinning ain't right
    (And sinning ain't right)
    But me and the Good Lord's gonna
    Have us a good talk later tonight
