Would Jesus Wear A Rolex?

Woke up this morning turned on my TV set

There in living color was something I can't forget

This man was preaching at me, laying on the charm

Asking me for 20 with 10,000 on his arm


He wore designer clothing and a big smile on his face

Selling me salvation while they sang Amazing Grace

Asking me for money when he had all the signs of wealth

Almost wrote a check out, but then I asked myself…


Would Jesus be political if he came back to earth?

Have his second home in Palm Springs, but try to hide his worth?

Take money from those poor folks when he comes back again?

And admit he's talked to all those preachers who said he’d been talking to them?


Would he wear a pinky ring, would he drive a fancy car?

Would his wife wear furs and diamonds?

Would his dressing room have a star?

If he came back tomorrow there's something I'd like to know:

Would Jesus wear a Rolex on his television show?
