FILLING IN FOR JESUS<br />
<br />
Never thought I&rsquo;d find a girl like that,<br />
Filling in for Jesus at the laundromat.<br />
Low-rider jeans and a cool floppy hat;<br />
No one prepared me for a girl like that.<br />
<br />
I was living on the edge, pretty close to obscene;<br />
I knew it was time for me to come clean.<br />
So, I took myself down to the washing machine.<br />
Yeah, I took dirty old me to the laundry.<br />
I was just about to get thirty quarters,<br />
When I ran into this woman without borders, <br />
Standing between me and that silver currency.<br />
She said, &ldquo;The only change you need is me.&rdquo; <br />
&ldquo;The only change you need is me.&rdquo;<br />
<br />
Never thought I&rsquo;d find a girl like that,<br />
Filling in for Jesus at the laundromat. <br />
Low-rider jeans and a cool floppy hat;<br />
No one prepared me for a girl like that.<br />
<br />
It&rsquo;s hard to relate everything that transpired,<br />
As I worked my way over to the nearest dryer.<br />
Somehow, some way, she beat me to the spot,<br />
And said, &ldquo;Make sure you put in everything you&rsquo;ve got.&rdquo;<br />
I said, &ldquo;These dumb machines won&rsquo;t take dollar bills.&rdquo;<br />
She said, &ldquo;So, what makes you think that I will?&rdquo;<br />
I tried to change the subject immediately,<br />
But she said, &ldquo;The only change you need is me.&rdquo;<br />
&ldquo;The only change you need is me.&rdquo;<br />
<br />
Never thought I&rsquo;d find a girl like that,<br />
Filling in for Jesus at the laundromat.<br />
Low-rider jeans and a cool floppy hat;<br />
No one prepared me for a girl like that.<br />
<br />
Now, my clothes are whiter than the driven snow,<br />
And my skin has a healthy, radiant glow.<br />
My eyes gleam brighter than the noonday sun,<br />
Watching for the man who soon may come.<br />
My ears are cleared for a higher calling.<br />
Quick, get the love net, I fear I&rsquo;m falling.<br />
Just don&rsquo;t change the station &ndash; I like what I see.<br />
She said, &ldquo;The only change you need is me.&rdquo;<br />
&ldquo;The only change you need is me.&rdquo;<br />
<br />
Never thought I&rsquo;d find a girl like that,<br />
Filling in for Jesus at the laundromat.<br />
Low-rider jeans and a cool floppy hat;<br />
Now, I&rsquo;m prepared for a girl like that.<br />
Now, I&rsquo;m prepared for a girl like that.<br />
