The Lyrics

TV preachers, appearing on my screen
TV preachers, claim that they're so clean

Standing up there on the stage, the Bible in their hand
Everything that's fun or good they want to see it banned, oh yeah

TV preachers, they like to scream and shout
TV preachers, all they do is pout

Everything you say and do they think is all a sin
Every time I hear them talk my patience runs so thin, oh yeah

TV preachers, so greedy and corrupt
TV preachers, I wish they'd all shut up

They claim to be holy and pure, they are the voice of God
Hypocritical and greedy, they're just all a big fraud

So divine, so benign, yeah right
They're so asinine

Gotta hate 'em, changing channel now

LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!!!!! I've seen ZZ Top twice, at a balloon fest benefit in 2018 and at a sold out gig the following year (w/ CHEAP TRICK and Marquis Knox as openers!). The second time I saw them they played this song, complete with the official MTV video on a background screen. You just hit the nail RIGHT ON THE HEAD, and you already made my day - or at least got it off to a terrific start. Stick it to those hypocrites. KUDOS ALL AROUND!
