"Love 89"
(Sheena Easton / Prince)

Sally snuck in
The back of the church
Her skirts showing off her legs
High-heeled shoes
Lipstick smeared
No money in her pocket she was too proud to beg
Raw hands gloved
Said she was dirty
Sally was hurt with every word they said
"Hallo queen of England"
Sally was so weak
Of "Oh she does her best work in bed"
Best work in bed
Hey
Hey hey
Wait a minute now
Reverend James thought
He'd stress on the Bible
As he screamed at everyone
I could see the tease
On rock and roll music
Lord help them will they see the sun
Huh? See the sun
But if the reverend could have sawn
Sally's soul in his heart
He'd see the lesson he'd got to learn
Learn the new law of salvation
And help this generation
Find the worth that's worth the earning
Worth the earning

Some people love to spend time for Jesus
But got no time for the sinners that be
And even though He shed His blood
To spread the word love
That makes each and everyone of us free
Free to sing in the choir
Free to stand up tall
But still some people aint got no time for sinners at all

Hey
Hey Hey
Take it away
Oh

They say that Sally don't belong to folks that are decent
No, no don't recall at all
So Sally lit a candle for all the sweet tears of Mary
And took a seat by the wall

Say don't make time for Jesus
Unless you got time (For the sinners that be)
You know He shed His blood
To spread the word love
That makes each and everyone of us free
To sing in the choir
Sing, and to stand up tall
But still some people aint got no time for sinners at all
Everybody say hey
Say hey

Oh
Stop loving so
We've got to accept the call
(To Lovin)
Yes we do y'all
Oh, love
Sweet love
Love
Sweet love
Never stop
