Jesus died for somebody's sins but not mine
Meltin' in a pot of thieves
Wild card up my sleeve
Thick heart of stone
My sins my own
They belong to me
Me

People say beware
But I don't care
The words are just
Rules and regulations to me
Me

I I walk in a room
You know I look so proud
I'm movin' in this here atmosphere
Where anything's allowed
And I go to this here party
And I just get bored
Until I look out the window, see a sweet young thing
Humpin' on the parking meter, leanin' on the parking meter
Oh, she looks so good
Oh, she looks so fine
And I got this crazy feeling and then I'm gonna
Ah-ah make her mine
Ooh I'll put my spell on her

Here she comes
Walkin' down the street
Here she comes
Comin' through my door
Here she comes
Crawlin' up my stair
Here she comes
Waltzin' through the hall
In a pretty red dress
And oh, she looks so good
Oh, she looks so fine
And I got this crazy feeling that I'm gonna
Ah-ah make her mine

And then I hear this knockin' on my door
Hear this knockin' on my door
And I look up into the big tower clock
And say, oh my God here's midnight
And my baby
Is walkin through the door
Leanin on my couch
She whispers to me
And I take the big plunge
And oh, she was so good
Oh, she was so fine
And I'm gonna tell the world that I just
Ah-ah made her mine

And I said darling
Tell me your name
She told me her name
She whispered to me
She told me her name
And her name is
And her name is
And her name is
And her name is

I was at the stadium
There were twenty thousand girls called their names out to me
Marie, Ruth but to tell you the truth
I didn't hear them
I didn't see
I let my eyes rise to the big tower clock
And I heard those bells chimin' in my heart
Going ding dong ding dong ding dong ding dong
Ding dong ding dong ding dong ding dong
Counting the time
Then you came to my room
And you whispered to me
And we took the big plunge
And oh you were so good,
Oh, you were so fine
And I gotta tell the world that I
Make her mine make her mine
Make her mine make her mine
Make her mine make her mine

G-l-o-r-i-a gloria
G-l-o-r-i-a gloria
G-l-o-r-i-a gloria
G-l-o-r-i-a gloria

And the tower bells chime
Ding dong they chime
They're singing
Jesus died for somebody's sins
But not mine

Gloria
