"Listen Sistern and Bredren, You must give up your develish way Give up all your wickedness, Or de good Lawd'll make you pay. Stop drinking date mean corn likker, Dat makes you crazy to fight. Stop rolling dose "Galloping dominoes" Dat makes you stay up all night. Sisters, don't let your tongue wag too much, Stop putting on all dat paint. And don't use dat bleach and powder, Dat makes you look white when you ain't. Before we dismiss, we'll jine in prayer. De deacons will now pass the plate aroun', And if you don't help out de collection, St. Peter will mos likely turn you down."
