Please Don't Send Me To Africa Lyrics

Preacher Speaking:
[You know I also attended
Holyland USA in Del Rio TX
Home of the drive in baptismal car wash
and disco house of worship
say Hallelujah
Brethren, that reminds me of a story
I'll never forget the movie Jungle Book
Say Hallelujah
You remember it dont'cha? Dr. Livingstone
say Hallelujah
Beautiful man, pillar of the community
Well you know, quite frankly he went into
The wilds of the jungle and never came back]


Oh Lord I am your willing servant
You know that I have been for years
I'm here in this pew every Sunday and Wednesday
I've stained it with many a tear
I've given You years of my service
I've always given my best
And I've never asked you for anything much
So, Lord I deserve this request

Chorus:
Please don't send me to Africa
I don't think I've got what it takes
I'm just a man,I'm not a Tarzan
Don't like lions, gorillas or snakes
I'll serve you here in suburbia
In my comfortable middle class life
But please don't send me out into the bush
Where the natives are restless at night


I'll see that the money is gathered
I'll see that the money is sent
I'll wash and stack the communion cups
I'll tithe eleven percent
I'll volunteer for the nursery
I'll go on the youth group retreat
I'll usher, I'll deacon , I'll go door to door
Just let me keep warming this seat

(Chorus)

Please don't send me to Africa
I don't think I've got what it takes
I'm just a man I'm not a Tarzan
Don't like lions, gorillas or snakes
I'll serve you here in suburbia
In my comfortable middle class life
But please don't send me to the ends of the earth
Where the natives are restless at night
