Align:    
  • We are going down, Jordan
  • We are going down, Jordan
  • We are going down, Jordan
  • Let's walk the heavenly road
  • I was livin' me life as an Anglican
  • Let me tell you how I changed to a Baptist man
  • I was livin' me life as an Anglican
  • Let me tell you how I changed to a Baptist man
  • One night I was walking down Fred'rick street
  • Poor and hungry, no shoes on me feet
  • I passed a door that said "Down with sin"
  • It was the smell of food that pull me in
  • We are going down, Jordan
  • We are going down, Jordan
  • We are going down, Jordan
  • Let's walk the heavenly road
  • Well, the leader walked up and he shook my hand
  • Said "I want you to be a holy man"
  • Right away I made a big decision
  • Me stomach was a growling for this new religion
  • I started over to get some food
  • When some sisters approached me in a mystic mood
  • They dunked me in the water 'bout four, five times
  • I couldn't see a thing 'cause I was almost blind
  • Singing I've got a sword in my hand
  • I'm going to use it well
  • I was drenched to me skin and I was feeling cold
  • But the sight of the food made me take a hold
  • The sisters started to break away
  • They said "Kneel, believers, kneel and pray"
  • I prayed and I prayed in a new-found style
  • In the meantime me taste buds was running wild
  • I was about to fall clear out of me seat
  • When a man jumped up and said "Before you eat
  • You got to mourn, children, mourn
  • You got to mourn, children, mourn
  • And if you want to go to Heaven when you die,
  • You got to mourn, children, mourn
  • Well, before I baptized I had plenty pain,
  • Now I find myself a free man again
  • Well, before I baptized I had plenty pain,
  • Now I find myself a free man again
  • Don't talk
