My aunt came through cancer free

Even my enemy got blessed with a new car

And my wild and crazy cousin still ain’t got an STD

 

Testimony after testimony at church

Answered prayers, blessings, and miracles too

For everyone but me

Got me wondering, “Lord, what did I do?”

And Sis. Joan stole church money right?

Don’t that girl drink and beat her kids?

And I know the choir director be clubbing all night!
