lyrics

Sunday morning got to get up, get ready, shine my shoes for myself and for my Daddy
Press my pants eat a big bowl cornflakes, and nobody else could make the pancakes my Mama made, Everything according to plan, cause my Daddy was a preacher man

At the storefront with the whole congregation, Daddy preachin’ the book of Revelation
Me and mama we would sing in the choir, when church was all done you know your soul had traveled higher, Everything according to plan, cause my Daddy was a preacher man

When daddy spoke to the people, everybody answered amen
He talked about his young days in the red hills of Geogia
And how he was saved back then

Home for dinner and the brothers come visit, TV baseball you know we never missed it
Plenty chicken and a pitcher of Kool-Aid, and nobody else could make the cornbread my mama made, Everything according to plan, cause my Daddy was a preacher man

You oughta see Daddy struttin’ in the pulpit, lettin’ the music get in his bones
He jumped and said Oh Lord save my soul, help me get my work done

And then my Daddy looked out to the people, he said I lift my hands unto the hills from whence cometh my help, and he said if I withdraw myself from thee, Oh tell me where can I go

Everything according to plan, cause my Daddy was a preacher man
