Take This Cup (and Shove it)

lastsupper

A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup. (1 Corinthians 11:28)

Hear the song:

.   .   .

Take this cup and shove it

I ain’t drinking it no more

Tastes like gall and I don’t recall

What I was drinking for

Your sacrifice was really nice

But this grates me to the core

Take this cup and shove it

I ain’t drinking it no more

I’ve been sitting in these church pews

For nigh on thirty years

Listening to the good news

Of your holy trail of tears

And I’ve heard the call to follow you

To count my life as loss

But that ain’t gonna happen

You can keep your damn old cross

Take this cup and shove it

I ain’t drinking it no more

Tastes like gall and I don’t recall

What I was drinking for

Salvation’s fine but this life is mine

And better rich than poor

Take this cup and shove it

I ain’t drinking it no more

Well that preacher man is a two-faced fake

He takes me for a fool

Got a brand new bouffant hair cut

And a degree from Bible school

And all these saints with brand new cars

Pretend to walk the Way

Those hypocrites are full of it

At least I got the nerve to say

Take this cup and shove it

I ain’t drinking it no more

Tastes like gall and I don’t recall

What I was drinking for

The gospel tale—it’s up for sale

And one all the saints ignore

So take this cup and shove it

I ain’t drinking it no more

Just take this cup and shove it

I ain’t drinking it no more

Take this cup and shove it
I ain’t drinking it no more
Tastes like gall and I don’t recall
What I was drinking for
Your sacrifice was really nice
But this grates me to the core
Take this cup and shove it
I ain’t drinking it no more
I’ve been sitting in these church pews
For nigh on thirty years
Listening to the good news
Of your holy trail of tears
And I’ve heard the call to follow you
To count my life as loss
But that ain’t gonna happen
You can keep your damn old cross
Take this cup and shove it
I ain’t drinking it no more
Tastes like gall and I don’t recall
What I was drinking for
Salvation’s fine but this life is mine
And better rich than poor
Take this cup and shove it
I ain’t drinking it no more
Well that preacher man is a two-faced fake
He takes me for a fool
Got a brand new bouffant hair cut
And a degree from Bible school
And all these saints with brand new cars
Pretend to walk the Way
Those hypocrites are full of it
At least I got the nerve to say
Take this cup and shove it
I ain’t drinking it no more
Tastes like gall and I don’t recall
What I was drinking for
The gospel tale—it’s up for sale
And one all the saints ignore
So take this cup and shove it
I ain’t drinking it no more
Just take this cup and shove it
I ain’t drinking it no mor
