Got a business plan and I know it will not fail
gonna start a church soon as I get out of jail
gonna build a congregation invite everybody in,
people love to hear about a former life of sin
and there'll be joy joy joy,
I know they will relate,
there'll be joy joy joy,
when I pass the plate - cause there's
money in Jesus
money in Jesus

I'm gonna lay my Bible on the shelf
gonna write a sermon all by myself
about me and the devil and how we parted ways
and a life of sin never ever pays
but there'll be joy joy joy
oh I can not wait
there'll be joy joy joy,
when I pass the plate - there'll be
money in Jesus
money in Jesus

I'm gonna paint his face on the side of a Cadillac
with his name on the plates and stickers on the back
sellin' t-shirts and key rings and all kinds of merch
in a little gift shop, right behind the church
and there'll be joy joy joy
please don't hesitate,
there'll be joy joy joy
when I pass the plate - there'll be
money in Jesus
money in Jesus
money in Jesus
money in Jesus

One thing I know about preachin' it's like puttin' on a show
cause I've seen it on TV and heard it on the radio
and I practice in my cell, and I practice on the guard
and I preach to every inmate in the prison yard
and I search the Bible, for that special verse
that will tear the dollars from a wallet or a purse - (bringin' that)

money in Jesus
oh oh oh oh
money in Jesus
oh oh oh oh
money in Jesus
oh oh oh oh
money in Jesus
money in Jesus
money in Jesus
