Whose Side’s Jesus On?

Whose Side’s Jesus On?

Gore says he prays when crises loom.
He asks just what would Jesus do.
And then he does that very thing
(If focus groups would do it too).

So whose side’s Jesus on, folks? Whose side’s Jesus on?
Who’s got the Savior’s brawn, folks? Yes, whose side’s Jesus on?

And Bush says faith-based treatment’s best
For those adrift or drug-addicted.
Salvation’s just for Christians, though.
No Jews. Yes, heaven’s still restricted.

So whose side’s Jesus on, folks? Yes, whose side’s Jesus on?
Who’s got the Savior’s brawn, folks? Yes, whose side’s Jesus on?

The other side, warns either side,
Would of the Savior’s blessings rob us.
And Lieberman? Well, he can say
That Jesus wouldn’t work on Shabbes.

So whose side’s Jesus on, folks? Yes, whose side’s Jesus on?
The battle lines are drawn, folks. Yes, whose side’s Jesus on?
