Authorities in the Temple

Who do you think you are!

Who gave you permission?

To act just like some star


We are the authority

We give out the Law

Who are you to come in here?

Giving it jaw jaw!


I’ll ask you a question

The Baptist – right or wrong?

The people they believed in him

But you wouldn’t go along


No comment was their brave reply

That’s over now and done

It’s you that’s causing trouble

It’s you we after son


Rules and regulations

Don’t tell the story whole

It’s genuineness of character

Integrity of soul


We know when folk are genuine

We reckon to know a fraud

And the words of Jesus – gospel

We know when we’ve met the Lord
