When your first love got stolen away
You took God’s name in vain
After you lost your very best friend
You cursed Him again and again
Pre
All that wrong thinkin I've been there
Angry as hell at the Man Upstairs
Ch
But If life gives you lemons
Not peaches
Make meringe pie with Jesus
Your words are like skippin stones
Headin for the Holy Ghost
Try out the 11th Commandment
Cuz one day you'll be leaving
And don't throw rocks at heaven
v2
Some days I get to talking trash
Fall from grace and land on my ass
Stop believing in Creation
And start showing the devil my appreciation
Pre
But every time I close my eyes and say a prayer
Damned if the Lord don’t answer it, I swear
Ch
But If life gives me lemons
Not peaches
I'll make meringe pie with Jesus
My words are like skippin stones
Headin for the Holy Ghost
I'll try out the 11th Commandment
Cuz one day I'll be leaving
And don't throw rocks at heaven

Bridge
The Lord’s house is a glass ceiling
What goes up must come down
Watch that name calling going around
Ch
And If life gives us lemons
Not peaches
Will make meringe pie with Jesus
Our words are like skippin stones
Headin for the Holy Ghost
Try out the 11th Commandment
Cuz one day will be leaving
Don't throw rocks
And don't throw rocks at heaven

When your first love got stolen away
You took God’s name in vain

Style and context makes all the difference lol wink
Good one, Elvis!

If life gives you lemons 'stead of peaches
Make lemon meringue pie and praise Jesus
Mind your careless moans and groans
Reconcile with the Holy Ghost
Give your guardian angel a nod
And don't throw stones at God

Elvis!
I admire your work here in scribing the commercial God song. Consulting with the knowledgeable Tony is commendable and wise.
I like the direction of Tony's replacement chorus. Don't throw stones at secular gods either(Lennon)?

Finally, the bridge is humorous and cool...but might not be how God would work it...it might be more like: you pray, he answers....you throw stones, dead silence.

Leave Lennon out of it , [naughty word removed] chapmann

The meringue pie is a laugh line. Okay, if that's what you want in the song. In a way, I like it, because it softens the preachiness.

The Devil is the Dean of Life College
But the All Saints school of hard knocks
Teaches a man that sleight of hand
Is a skill better than knowledge

Lawman wearing his down town frown
Not enough equity to go around
Assumed entitlement, everybody's doin'it
Grinning thieves lost in the crowd

Heaven ain't on the map
And angels have a thankless job
You can't bribe the Devil
And throw rocks at God
(CH)
If life gives you lemons 'stead of peaches
Make lemon meringue pie and praise Jesus
Mind your careless moans and groans
Reconcile with the Holy Ghost
Give your guardian angel a nod
And don't throw stones at God

Politicians shatter the ceiling
For WOKE disciples with hurt feelings
The system is wrecked, cause and effect
The precedence for stealing

Minority millionaires take a knee
I'm laughing tears but it ain't funny
Rock-n-Roll has lost its soul
And the Pope just wants more money

Tossing pearls at swine
Drunk on wicked wine
Armageddon in the garden of Eden
It's judgment time

I may seem off kilter
But my Spirit has no filter
No matter what you call it
God won't fit in my wallet
(CH)

(TAG...)
My guardian angel walked off the job
I'm dodging the lightning
Throwing rocks at God...
"Oh, Lord won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz..."

Watch out for those millennials
They're all purple haired criminals
Rigging the game, acting insane
Offended by EVERYTHING!
