"LIFE OF A MISSIONARY"

Intro

[Everyday] --

Verse 1
Growin' up in the good old USA,
Everyone's got freedom, or so they
say.
But workin' for money, bein' bound by doe,
Don't look like freedom to me!-Oh, no!
I'm in need of something more,
And it ain't in this System's status quo!

Chorus 1
I want the life of a missionary.
And I need to in God's work be buried.
So I ain't got time to get into myself,
'Cause I'm thinkin' 'bout somebody else.
That's the life of a missionary.
To me what they call the "norm" is scary!
I need to be revolutionary.
So I ain't got time to get into myself,
'Cause I'm thinkin' 'bout somebody else.
That's the life of a missionary. Yeah!

Interlude: ----

Verse 2
It's easy to get locked into this world.
Thinkin' "if I had this or that, then I'd be fulfilled."
I don't need a new guitar, the one I've got's just fine,
Don't need a nice, shiney, fast car to call mine.
I don't need new clothes to keep up with the fads.
I just need Jesus, the MO letters, and my sleeping bag!

Chorus 2
I want the life of a missionary.
And I need to in God's work be buried.
So I ain't got time to get into myself,
'Cause I'm thinkin' 'bout somebody else.
That's the life of a missionary.
To me what they call the "norm" is scary!
I need to be revolutionary.
So I ain't got time to get into myself,
Cause I'm thinkin' 'bout somebody else.
That's the life of a missionary.

Bridge
don't need the possessions of this world to pacify me.
Only things from the 5-D realm can satisfy me.
Workin' for a System I don't believe in. Don't like the sound of it!-
I know there's gotta be a better way to live and I've found it!
I've …

Chorus 3
Found the life of a missionary.
And I need to in God's work be buried.
To me, this world is temporary
And I pray to be revolutionary.
So I ain't got time to get into myself,
'Cause I'm thinkin' 'bout somebody else.
That's the life of a missionary.

Interlude

[Everyday] --

Verse 4
Let your light shine everywhere.
How worthless all else is compared.
Why work my whole life for a regular salary
When I can have the life of one of God's missionaries?
Keep servin' Him well and He'll serve you.
If you preach the Gospel, you shall live of it too!

Chorus 4
I found the life of a missionary.
And I need to in God's work be buried.
So I ain't got time to get into myself,
'Cause I'm thinkin' 'bout somebody else.
That's the life of a missionary.
To me what they call the "norm" is scary!
I need to be revolutionary.
So I ain't got time to get into myself,
'Cause I'm thinkin' 'bout somebody else.
That's the life of a missionary.
