Woke up this mornin′, turned on the t.v. set. There in livin' color, was somethin′ I can't forget. This man was preachin' at me, yeah, layin′ on the charm Askin′ me for twenty, with ten-thousand on his arm. He wore designer clothes, and a big smile on his face Sellin' me salvation while they sang Amazin′ Grace. Askin' me for money, when he had all the signs of wealth. I almost wrote a check out, yeah, then I asked myself (Chorus) Would He wear a pinky ring, would He drive a fancy car? Would His wife wear furs and diamonds, would His dressin′ room have a star? If He came back tomorrow, well there's somethin′ I'd like to know Could ya tell me, Would Jesus wear a Rolex on His television show. Would Jesus be political if He came back to earth? Have His second home in Palm Springs, yeah, a try to hide His worth? Take money, from those poor folks, when He comes back again, And admit He's talked to all them preachers who say they been a talkin′ to Him? (Chorus) Just ask ya′ self, Would He wear a pinky ring, Would He drive a fancy car? Would His wife wear furs and diamonds, would His dressing room have a star? If He came back tomorrow, well there's somethin′ I'd like to know: Could ya tell me, would Jesus wear a Rolex, Would jesus wear a Rolex Would Jesus wear a Rolex On His television show-ooh-ooh?
