House of God Church, in my old neighborhood,
They're building condos where it stood
And on judgment day it should come as no surprise,
When those saints come marching in
They won't be wearin' suits or ties
I thought about it a lot and it don't make no sense to me;
If you can build luxury condos,
Fixing that church should have been easy

House of God Church, Ivan dealt a brutal blow,
Property values all went up and now that church has got to go
When those saints come marching in
I hope they're carrying guns,
And your bulldozers won't save you
Or your stocks or mutual funds
No more hat parades, hallelujahs, or slide guitars
It's all just history and that special on NPR
