Saving Grace

One time around the block
two times around the clock
three times don't cross the little lady

So pretty and oh so bold
got a heart full of gold on a lonely road
she said "I don't even think that God can save me"

(Am I) gaining ground
(Am I) losing face
(Am I) lost and found by Saving Grace
Thankful for the gift my Angel's gave me

Born alone
We die alone
nuttin' but sittin' here by the phone
waitin for the Lord to send my callin'

Street wise from the boulevard
Jesus only knows that she tries too hard
she's only tryin' to keep the sky from fallin'

If any man says it's Heaven and Hell
Prob'ly got somethin' useless to sell
You ask me if I'm saved but what's it to ya?

Blow a quarter
cop another eight
you're runnin' out of hide
you're losin' your faith
Throw your hands up and scream
halleluiah halleluiah halleluiah halleluiah halleluiah Amen

One time around the sun
another year older and my work ain't done
It's time for me to write the final chapter

Deal the cards and roll the dice
sex drugs and rock'n roll are my only vice
tryin' to figure out just what's here after

halleluiah halleluiah halleluiah halleluiah halleluiah halleluiah Amen

be careful as you go
cos little people grow
and little people know
when little people fight,
we may look easy pickings
but we got some bite!
so never kick a dog
because it's just a pup
you'd better run for cover when the pup grows up

I don't know the origin of that, I found it on web somewhere recently.
