Lyrics

Looking for Jesus at the Corner Drug Store


Where I bought my shoes
Don't sell strings any more
Gotta do my shopping at the corner drug store

I'm going over the counter
To even the devil's score
Looking for Jesus at the corner drug store


The voice on the overhead
Is barking out the call to war
Salvation is waiting at the end of aisle 4

I run to get a deal
Like a coupon-clipping whore
Save a dime on Jesus at the corner drug store


The preacher in the pillbox is the devil's comprador
Fills my prescription like he's God's ambassador
Stands behind the counter mixing metaphors
With spit and polish from hell's own cuspidor
He thinks he's the Jesus of the corner drug store


The checkout girl
Has a face I adore
She prays for salvation to (her) Chrisitian Dior

Yhe angel of the morning
Is falling through the floor
'Cuz everything's a dollar on aisle 24


The pusher in the pulpit is the devil's stevedore
Fills my prescription with a cross-cut 2x4
Stands behind the counter mixing metaphors
With spit and vinegar from hell's own cuspidor
He thinks he's the Jesus of the corner drug store


The sickness of the heart
Ain't ever had a cure
Time never heals, it just keeps you feeling sore

There's a Bible in the bottom
Of the manager's drawer
There's a revival in a bottle out on aisle 24


The parson is the piper of the devil's holy war
Fills my prescription like a tinfoil (toxic) troubadour
Dancing on the counter, mincing matadors
The king of spit and polish dons his cuspidor
