I'm Drinkin' Vodka for Jesus

Irish Song Lyrics - I'm Drinkin' Vodka for JesusAuthor: Donal O'Shaughnessy
Copyright: 2008

I wrote this song for a guy (John) in Cleveland who proudly told me that he gave up beer for Lent. He was holding a pint glass of what looked like ice water. When I asked him what he drinking he proudly announced, 'VODKA!' So I wrote a song called 'I'm Drinking Vodka for Jesus' Here's the lyrics for a chuckle (I hope). Don't be afraid, I'm already excommunicated. I'm Drinking Vodka for Jesus intro: Lent it is a solemn time For prayer and sacrifice To give up something that you love Or maybe it’s a vice Maybe you can do a deed in service to the Lord And hope like all good Catholics you won’t perish by the sword That’s why… (CHORUS) I’m drinkin vodka for Jesus Jesus, the Son of God the Christ I’m drinkin vodka for Jesus And that is my Lenten sacrifice I’ll avoid what’s from the tap To keep the Devil off my back I’ll testify there is no Power Higher When I chose a different flavor It was for my Lord and Savior To shun Guinness and instead pour Stolichnaya CHORUS Your first miracle divine was turning water into wine In every earthen jar or glass and bottle But I’m turning beer into vodka 'cause I could never top Ya'! I’m doing what I can as a mere mortal C When God hears what I’ve done to revere the Holy One To achieve a spiritual high with vodka seven The Pearly Gates will swing And Saint Pete will say, “Straight in!” While the angels raise a toast to me in Heaven CHORUS I’ve heard Hell’s a place that stinks so I’m stickin with well drinks For 40 days my plan I’ll not refute But St. Patrick’s on a Monday and to ensure it is a fun day I’ll use my Sunday Lenten substitute CHORUS If it’s chocolate you deny or any cake or pie Or any fine dessert that’s on the list My reward will be supurb ‘Cause I kicked beer to the curb while I’m sufferin' with Grey Goose and a twist CHORUS
