Spoken:
Gather 'round boys and girls.
Gather 'round.
It's story time.

Now way back in the olden days
before Dale Evans was born,
there lived a king.
His name was David, and he loved God
with all of his heart, soul, mind and body.
Well, one day David was in one of his
"Let's praise the Lord in a creative way" moods,
and, in front of all of Israel,
can you imagine what he was doing?

Dancing naked-
Before the Lord.
Dancing naked-
When the Spirit poured.
Dancing naked-
He wasn't ashamed.
Dancing naked-
He was praising His name.

Well, well, well,
Way to go Dave,
and you thought streaking was a modern day fad.

Well, God was pleased at this expression of worship,
but there were more than a few people in the land
who didn't understand the latest dance craze.
One of the self-proclaimed judgers of other people's spirituality
was Saul's daughter.
She hated David for dancing naked
and told him he was vulgar to his face,
and God,
who doesn't appreciate being told what He can or can't like,
caused it so that the lady didn't have any kids for the rest of her life!
Whoa! Tough move.
Somebody help me off with my jacket.

Dancing naked-
Before the Lord.
Dancing naked-
When the Spirit poured.
Dancing naked-
He wasn't ashamed.
Dancing naked-
He was praising His name.

Well...Hey!
Isn't this the part in a song where you throw in something different?
Well, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Let's cross it boys!

Hey! What's your name?
Michaelangelo.
What are you doing here?
Just making a few sketches.

Well, we've come to the end of the story and you know,
even though it comes from the Bible,
there will probably be some critics out there
who will think that it was vulgar,
who don't understand how God can use something
like Lust Control.
We're used to flack, though.
We wear flack jackets,
we listen to Roberta Flack.
The ones who give us flack, though,
well,
I wouldn't be surprized if they never had any kids!

Dancing naked-
Before the Lord.
Dancing naked-
When the Spirit poured.
Dancing naked-
He wasn't ashamed.
Dancing naked-
He was praising His name.

(2 Samuel 6:20)
