  Shot Of Love session 13, Clover Recorders, Los Angeles CA - 1.may.1981, album version  

Go ahead an' talk about it because he makes you doubt
Because he has denied himself the things that you can't live without
Laugh at him behind his back just like the others do
Remind him of what he used to be when he comes walkin' thru.

He's the property of jesus, resent him to the bone
You got somethin' better, you got a heart of stone.

Stop your conversation when he passes in the street
Hope he falls upon himself, oh won't that be sweet
Because he can't be exploited by superstition anymore
Because he can't be bribed or bought by the things that you adore.

He's the property of jesus, resent him to the bone
You got somethin' better, you got a heart of stone.

When the whip that's keepin' you in line doesn't make him jump
Say he's out of hearin', say that he's a chump
Say he's out of step with reality as you try to test his nerve
Because he doesn't pay tribute to the king that you serve.

He's the property of jesus, resent him to the bone
You got somethin' better, you got a heart of stone.

Say that he's a loser cause he's got no common sense
Because he don't increase his worth at someone else's expense
Because he's not afraid of dyin', say he's got no style
'Cause he doesn't tell you jokes or fairy tales, say he's failed to make you smile.

He's the property of jesus, resent him to the bone
You got somethin' better, you got a heart of stone.

You can laugh at salvation, you can play olympic games
You think that when you rest at last, you'll go back from you came
But you've picked up quite a story an' you've changed since the womb
What happened to the real you, you've been captured but by whom?

He's the property of jesus, resent him to the bone
You got somethin' better, you got a heart of stone.  up
