Story

Inspired by:

a) spotting a tough-looking nun with a basketball

b) Mother Teresa - another tough but loving "sistah"

c) anyone who spends some of their finite energy on making a tough world a little softer for others

SISTER GOTTA BAD HABIT

SHE LOVE EVERYBODY WHO DOWN

HOLD UP THEIR HEAD WHEN THEY’RE DYIN

LIFT EM UP OFF THE GROUND

 

M T POCKET, M T BOWLS, M T WELLS, M T SOULS

SHE FILL EM – WITH AN ANGEL’S LOVE

 

SISTER GOTTA BAD, BAD HABIT

SHE HELPIN OUT A POOR MAN AND HIS WIFE

THEY SAY SHE GONNA HELP HER POOR SELF TO DEATH

BUT SHE HELPIN HERSELF TO TRUE LIFE

 

M T POCKET, M T BOWLS, M T WELLS, M T SOULS

SHE FILL EM – WITH AN ANGEL’S LOVE 

 

[BRIDGE]:

SISTER, YOU ON THE WRONG SIDE OF TOWN

SISTER, WHERE EVERYBODY’S JUST DOWN

I KNOW, YOU HEAR THE PEOPLE CRY

SISTER, GIVE EM WINGS TO FLY

 

[SOLOS]

 

[BRIDGE]

 

SISTER GOT A TERRIBLE HABIT

THEY SAY IT’S IN THE COMP’NY SHE KEEPS

SOMETIMES SHE HANGIN ROUND WITH FOLKS WHO AINT NO GOOD

SORTA LIKE THE MAN WHO SAT WITH THIEVES

 

M T POCKET, M T BOWLS, M T WELLS, M T SOULS 

SHE FILL EM – WITH AN ANGEL’S LOVE

 

SISTER GOTTA BAD SPENDIN HABIT

SHE HANDIN OUT HER LAST THIN DIME

BUT WE COULD NEVER SPEND ALL THE LOVE SHE GIVE

EVEN WHEN SISTER RUN OUTTA TIME

 

M T POCKET, M T BOWLS, M T WELLS, M T SOULS

SHE FILL EM – WITH AN ANGEL’S LOVE
