They call him marvelous Minister Mark
He so bad he preaches it sweaty Ďní hot
Heís not gonna stop, heís not gonna stop
Jumpiní in his seven hundred dollar suit
He tells us what we should do
He yells what we could do
Heís not gonna stop, heís not gonna stop
Runniní from one side of the church to the other
Screaminí againsí sin againsí our brother
Heís not gonna stop, heís not gonna stop
Music starts aní then he starts to sing
Minister Mark act like he got evírything

Heís lookiní for money, holdiní on to fame
Minister Mark he ask for my offeriní again
Heís begginí me to give to The Lord
When I look at him all I see is the world
New cars aní a huge mansion up on the hill
Evíry day he got sizzliní steaks out on the grill
He preaches againsí sin
But itís all about him
Itís all about him, yeah

Donít get me wrong
This song is about love
The message he preaches is beneficial
We need to give and be sacrificial
But Marvelous Mark is superficial
Heís all talk aní a whole buncha sizzle
Heís not gonna stop, heís not gonna stop
Heís like his steak burniní on his grill
Preachiní it hot Do as I say not as I do
Heís not gonna stop, heís not gonna stop
Music starts aní then he starts to sing
Minister Mark act like he got evírything

Heís lookiní for money, holdiní on to fame
Minister Mark he ask for my offeriní again
Heís begginí me to give to The Lord
When I look at him all I see is the world
New cars aní a huge mansion up on the hill
Evíry day he got sizzliní steaks out on the grill
He preaches againsí sin
But itís all about him
Itís all about him, yeah

Then one Sunday
An elder stood up aní begged
Minister Mark, you need to stop
You need to stop

All Mister Mark could say was, ďWhat?Ē
You preach against sin aní beg us for cash
When there is grievous sin right here in the camp
Repent right now brother before itís too late
And you stand before Jesus in judgment

Aní before our elder could finish his message from God
Marvelous Mark gave an evil wink aní a hateful nod
Our elder was whisked away by Security
I wondered by what authority

Heís lookiní for money, holdiní on to fame
Minister Mark he ask for my offeriní again
Heís begginí me to give to The Lord
When I look at him all I see is the world
New cars aní a huge mansion up on the hill
Evíry day he got sizzliní steaks out on the grill

When I walked outta church that day
I gathered a buncha friends my way
I told them whatís been bugginí me Ďbout Mark:

He preaches againsí sin
But in the end, friends
But itís all about him
Itís all about him, yeah

Very soon after we left Mista Mark
Now we all go to the elderís house

yeah.

Very interesting and profound commentary about "prosperity preachers" and you described the scene very well.

I enjoyed the ending and the message it conveyed.

God bless~
