Lyrics
Parody of "You Oughta Know" by Alanis Morissette
(Ecclesiastes 7:5, Romans 1:18-21, 10:9-13)

I want you to know that I have prayed for you
I wish nothing but the best for your soul
I know you're worried probl'y -- you'll get converted like me
When it comes down to it there's a fear there
Cause you say, "Hell -- it can't be" -- You should play poker, baby
You sure do make a really excellent bluffer
Those who call on His name will be saved by His grace
Cause He paid quite enough for you when, you know, He died
And every time you speak His name it's in vain, what a shame
Cause His arms are still open wide -- open wide -- while you're still alive
But I'm here -- to remind you of the mess you're in if you turn away
If you dare -- to deny Him and the cross then there is a different place
You, you, you -- gotta go
You think there's no Hell -- you're not evil -- I'm not nice to tell you that you could go
If you forget about me -- you can do as you please
I ain't above you -- I'm a miserable sinner
But there's a path we must take -- now if we wanna be saved
And if you think it's a joke -- then you'll suffer
Those who call on His name will be saved by His grace
Cause He paid quite enough for you when, you know, He died
And every time you speak His name it's in vain, what a shame
Cause His arms are still open wide -- open wide -- while you're still alive
But I'm here -- to remind you of the mess you're in if you turn away
It's not fair -- to deny Him
And the cross and just think you'll get away -- You, you, you -- gotta go
There's no one who can say that He sent them away
Cause an offer was made to you and you closed your eyes -- and you knew it
And every one who goes to hell has no-one else to blame
That's not appealing -- I hurt your feelings
CHORUS
