The Lyrics

Based on Matthew 20:20-28
[Mother of two Apostles: James and John (MJJ)]:
How does James catch a thousand fish
Any time people wish?
Just admit, he ought to sit
Next to you

Why is John called the one you love?
Him I think the world of
Just admit, he ought to sit
Next to you

James and John the thunder boys, a most dynamic duo
They're the cream of any crop you can construe
They are called the Sons of Thunder cuz
With them there would be nothing you can't do.

They are why everyone in town
Follows you all around
You're a hit, when they can sit
Next to you

Lady that's ridiculous you don't know what you're saying
My Kingdom does not on a man depend
Were they with me on Creation's Eve?
Or can they drink this cup of Satan's blend?

I am why all the lame in town
Follow us all around
Just admit, they cannot sit
Next to me

Just admit, they ought to sit
Next to you

Wa wa wa wa wa Next to you/me
Wa wa wa wa wa Next to you/me
