Sister (Hell’s Back Door)

Sister (Hell’s Back Door) (from the album and play Immaculate Misconceptions)

Got half of what you wanted and all of what you need
Be sure to look twice before you cross my street
Say sister don’t you seem a touch uptight
Why won’t your father let you out tonight?

Not pulling no voodoo, don’t want you to scoff
You have to recognize that I think you’re real hot
Ain’t committing no sins I have seen before… Meet me outside, at Hell’s back door.

Heard you singing in the choir, got an angel of a voice
Doesn’t seem to me that I have much of a choice
Say sister can’t you see that you’re my type?
My favorite colors are black and white.

Been counting my blessings and saying my prayers
I’m not too concerned about anyone’s stares.
Ain’t committing no sins I have seen before… Meet me outside, at Hell’s back door.

BRIDGE
You’re my blood, my wine – better body than Christ
Mother Mary, she was scary, but you always look fine
A miraculous conception – you could make me believe
I’m the serpent, you’re the garden, just like Adam & Eve

The Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost
All of them know I love you the most
Say sister won’t you give me half a chance
For all you know it’s what God commands

Your eyes are magic, and I love your stares
You’re my bad habit, no one else compares
The priesthood can wait, that’s what time is for
Meet me outside, at Hell’s back door.
